Only our 20-year-old, and 14-year-old made it all the way to the top of the 65m tall tree, to the lookout point. Our 11-year-old who since young said he has a fear of height, made it to the half-way platform after several attempts. This is a good place to train the children to overcome challenges and fear. However the younger... More

The Bicentennial Tree is another of Pemberton's 3 climbing trees, the other two being the Gloucester Tree and the Diamond Tree (closer to Manjimup). It's worth the visit to appreciate the work that goes into these trees and the reason why they exist- as a fire prevention tool so vital in the thickly forested areas of Western Australia.

Having just returned from our second climb in two days I can thoroughly recommend climbing Gloucester and the Bicentennial tree for many reasons, if you are of average or better fitness and health. It's scary enough to make you feel like you have done something brave but safe enough to have a go. My 8 year old was amazed he... More

Ok, make sure if you visit here, you're willing to climb the tree! If it's a wet day and you're not too sure, then maybe give it a miss. Make sure you wear shoes and maybe pockets with zips. Now after all that, build up the courage and get climbing! It might seem daunting but it's really safe. Just take... More

Again along the lines of the Gloucester tree this is not for the faint heart-ed or week heart-ed for that matter, though its worth going to to see if you fall into either category and give it a go haha. The bicentennial has a number of levels that you can take a breather on or overtake etc before you get... More

I can't believe this is open to anyone just like that. This is a great spot, if you manage to get on top of it it's definitely worth it. However do not attempt a climb if you not confident. It's hard, somehow long and very impressive. I was expecting some sort of security harness but no there isn't. Not recommended... More

as for other tree climbs in the area this is difficult climb. Not for unfit or children. No safety on way up.

Worth a short drive out of pemberton is the Dave Evans tree named after a local member for the area who was instrumental in creating national parks in the south west and many other community initiatives. Lovely walk to the river listening to the sounds of hundreds of birds. The tree is a challenge but up there the view is... More

Climbed all 3 tree's in one afternoon (Gloucester, Bicentennial & Diamond), once you reach the top the view is absolutely beautiful and completely worth the climb! It was raining on and off at the time I climbed. The pegs were not slippery at all! Because of the rain I got to see a beautiful rainbow once I had reached the... More

The tallest lookout tree I left this until last an easier climb than the Gloucester Tree for me. Again a lot of people come look and climb a few steps before turning back. So if you manage to climb it kudos to you. The views from the top are amazing and we'll worth the effort of getting to the top.
