Road in
Feb. 2021 • Friends
The tree is fine but the road to it is fun if you have a 4WD. The platform looks a bit old. The surrounding vegetation looks lush right now.

It certainly is a tall tree
Feb. 2020
It was great to see the area around the tree so well protected, so that future generations can continue to enjoy this without damge to the tree. It certainly is tall, nearly impossible to photograph as its so high up to the top. The road in and out is dirt but well maintained ( we came through from the Lakes Way) and it is easy to get to. The tree is only a few meters walk from the car park so its easily accessible. Worth a visit.

Road in need improvement
Jul. 2019 • Friends
It had recently stopped raining when we decided to visit the Grandis. The road was very wet and muddy with pools of water everywhere. However we managed to arrive and leave safely. The walk to the tree is on a timber boardwalk, and the view from the lookout was worthwhile.

Tall Tall Tree
Dec. 2018 • Family
We drove off the highway through Myall Lakes National Park along a single lane dirt road (relatively well maintained for our Kia Carnival) to the Grandis Tree. The drive in was half the adventure and the kids felt they were real explorers. We were greeted by a magnificent 400 year old flooded gum - estimated to be 76m tall. The first branches don't start until 25m from the ground. Regarded to be the tallest tree in NSW - it is almost impossible to get into a photo. The kids reminisced and compared it to the Big Tree at Guildford Victoria that we visited the year before. Well worth the effort to get off the highway.

Good place to pull up
Oct. 2018 • Couples
We often pull up here on our way north and on the return trip. Great place for families as well. Number of picnic tables under cover. Clean toilets and a play area for the children. Lots of parking spaces. Shops near buy if you need to buy food & drink

Great Grandis
Feb. 2019 • Couples
Park amongst the tall gum trees, always shade available. An information board tells you all about the incredible Grandis - tallest, biggest tree in NSW. 400 years old and an estimated 75m high, this tree is worth the drive. Picnic area and long drop toilet are very rustic!

We enjoyed the drive in to the picnic area. Anyone interested in trees would like to visit this spot. We were interested in the information displayed about how these trees adapt and grow. Awesome nature.

Interesting worth a visit
Feb. 2017 • Solo
I have been driving past the sign tallest tree in N.S.W on the lakes way for years and have never turned off to investigate but have always wanted to. I finally made the turn and headed down a dirt road in very good condition. 5-10 mins later arrived at the Tree.
Very interesting amazing just how big trees can grow. The viewing area is good and well maintained with plenty of interesting information as well. It is worth taking the time to detour off the main road and check out this huge tree. Good for all ages.

Eucalyptus Grandis (Flooded Gum) - N.S.W. Tallest Tree - EXCELLENT.
Oct. 2016 • Couples
We were heading south from Forster along the Lakes Way around the Myall Lakes National Park when we found we had an opportunity to again visit this tall tree which we had not seen since 1986. A short 5 km. unmade road trip brought us to this magnificent tree and lovely surrounding bush. We spent some time admiring this fine gum and then walked back to our car where we observed a large goanna wandering through the picnic area. After getting some nice photographs we looked around the area a little more and then returned to the Lakes Way to continue on to the small town of Bulahdelah. Well worth the detour from the Pacific highway. A lovely old tree and bush.
