I drove there the last weekend with some friends to see "the big tree". If you afraid of the highness is not for you. To climb untill the top takes 5 minutes and it's very very cool. On the top there is a platform with an amazing view. For the most braves there is also a hole in the roof... More

We attended here with our children 16,11 & twin 9 y.olds. Unbelievably there was no safety wire or even mesh under the rungs - its a long way to fall. However, on a positive note - no line up!! Based on that just myself & our 16 y.old son climbed the 65m tree. Pretty hairy at times particularly on the... More

Loved every moment of it. It's absolutely brilliant that you can freely climb the tree. It's so good old school fun. If you are scarred of heights and/or not fit it's probably best not to take your chances as the only safety there is, is a netting but you can still fall between the rungs.

The 65m tall tree climb is a great one to do if you aren't scared of heights. It's not particularly safe to do with only metal rungs hammered into the tree trunk and a wire netting around this, however it's satisfying reaching the top. The tree looks better from the bottom, and while the top offers a broad view of... More

This was a Great climb, but be warned it has its dangers and it not for the faint hearted. If you are careful and take you time it is quite safe and not too strenuous but as you are climbing on pegs on the outside of the tree up 65m you don't want to be too affected by heights! There... More

When in Pemberton, one needs to see the view of the Karri trees from the top! for me is also another way of realising how vast this ozzi land is!!

If you like heights, this tree is for you. If you don't like heights, this tree is for you to look at in awe. Unbelievable it is still open for climbing. Wish I had climbed higher!

Amazing tree but no way was I going to climb it. A short side trip to this tree was well worth the visit. Beautiful surrounding bush and good road (although gravel road)

This tree is something to see it is taller than the Gloucester tree by 10 meters and it really looks sooooo much more taller as there are not many branches around the trunk of the tree. What a sight to see.

Such an impressive Karri tree. Well worth the visit into this part of the forest. It's very close to the car park and the information about the tree and Dave Evans is interesting. We didn't climb the tree but were interested in watching a young chap do so!
