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!

The tree is typical of the tall trees in the SW part of WA. Nice to see - climb it if you want. Picnic sites are nearby.

We don't get trees like this out East so I was keen to tackle a climb. Pity I'm afraid of heights - but terrific that there weren't 20 people queueing up behind me! An incredible experience but not for the faint-hearted or unfit. The middle stage platform made this the choice for me.

My two kids ages 11 and 35 scurried to the top in no time at all as they are young fit and active, and absolutely loved the view and experience of being up there. I wisely stayed on the ground due to tammy knees and lack of fitness and enjoyed the view from terra firm :-)

Not for the faint hearted! At about 65 metres of climbing steel rods you definitely have to keep you nerve! The rewards are there though as the view is outstanding! You will be proud of yourself once you have reached the top as there as a steel caged area where you can safely relax before you descend! Try and communicate... More

Went there thinking that it would be an easy climb to the top so everyone could have a chance of seeing the views. Not at all the pegs used to climb it are far apart and could easily slip through them. I didn't have the appropriate shoes for climbing , I tried climbing up but didn't get too far as... More

The bicentennial tree is the tallest of of the three Pemberton fire lookout trees. It's a great climb but tough on the nerves especially as the tree sways in the wind. Drafty's campsite is a great spot to stay if you want a nice spot down by the Warren river, and is about a 4 km walk to the tree.

Take your time, and climb to the top. It is not that hard, but it is not easy either. There will be a sense of fulfillment in the end.
