Only a short walk from centre of Port McNeil! It's the biggest Burl I have ever seen although was a bit disappointed to find out in the small print that it is 'The Worlds Biggest Unofficial Burl'. Worth the trip.

My second visit to the burl and I still don't understand why it's there or what it's about, but there is something great about the madness of the whole fact tourist information point you to a tree lump

After moving into town we went for a walk and stumbled upon the worlds largest burl. It was neat to see such a large burl. It's tucked up by the ball diamonds and we almost missed it, but happy we didn't

It is hard to imagine a burl so big. It is a quick stop but it is worth seeing if you are in the area.

Just on the edge of town, it's worth a look if you have time. If you can't find it I suggest you ask in the very helpful tourist information office
