Bicentennial Tree

Really interesting history and innovative use for the tree. You will need to be brave to do the climb to the top, though the view from the top would be magnificent.

I've been to the Bicentennial Tree a couple times now, but haven't yet made it past the first platform. Maybe next time... The tree is the tallest of the three climb-able trees in the area, reaching the height of 75 metres. For the less adventurous, the first platform is at 25 metres. Definitely wear appropriate comfortable shoes. If you're camping/touring... More

Was the second tree (the other being the Gloucester tree) I climbed when I was in Pemberton. Since this one is the tallest tree, its definitely more thrilling and tiring. I didn't really paced myself well, so I got breathless halfway through. But the view from the top is just spectacular!

Relatively easy to get to. There is a fee to see the park and the also places to have a bbq. The toilet facilities were good.

I had climbed the tree when I was a child but it was much scarier as an adult! Definitely not for those afraid of heights. Even from the ground the tree is impressive so well worth the visit if the group is a mix of those who do an do not want to climb.

Great climb if you can make it up to the top, the view is definately worth the climb. Bit steep going up and coming down can be scary but with the right shoes on suggest joggers it worth the effort

There are three trees that can be climbed in the area, some were initially bushfire lookouts, we visited all and found the developed walking tracks around the trees together with the info stands far more interesting

I had climbed the Gloucester Tree many times between the ages of 8 and 16 but then as a young adult completely lost my nerve. So I was determined!! Driving through the Karri Forrest in this area is magical, they are truly awe inspiring trees. Can't believe people complain about a $12 car fee for national park entry!! 5 people... More

I can definitely recommend climbing the Bicentennial Tree. I, like most was apprehensive about the climb. Whilst I don't really fear heights, I certainly fear falling, so it was a challenge to get started. Honestly once you are going it is great and any fear subsides. The view from the platforms is amazing and it feels great to get to... More
