This is one of three trees that are open for the public to climb, and the times I've been here it was practically deserted. Gloucester Tree and the Dave Evans Tree can both get quite busy, so this is a good alternative, if you are trying to avoid crowds, and don't want to wait your turn to climb.

Of the three trees, this one is the lowest at 51 metres high, but it's still a great challenge to get to the top.

Even if you don't climb the tree, you can stop and read some of the information signs that are on site. But unless you're keen just to see the tree out of curiosity, it's hardly worth stopping in here if you're not doing the climb at all. Then again, maybe you'll have courage to do the first part of the climb only, and see if you can get to the first platform? There are several platforms, so just going to the first platform is certainly an option for the less brave.

Not for everyone, and certainly not for the faith of heart, but I have an adventurous spirit, so excellent fun as far as I'm concerned - hence the five star rating!

This is one of WA's climbing trees, and the easiest to access given its right by the South Western Highway.

I'm sure in many countries these would be banned as there is nothing to stop your fall as you climb metal rungs round and round the tree.

Quite an exhilarating experience if you are up to it, and just wait until someone is trying to pass in the other direction!
