Between 1937 and 1952, a network of eight lookout trees were built in the karri forests. Three remain and are open to the public and can be climbed when conditions are favourable.
There are 153 metal pegs that spiral around the Gloucester Tree, and visitors who climb to the lookout platform in its upper branches can enjoy the spectacular view of the surrounding karri forest.
Or so I’ve read – Climbing would be one thing, getting back down another and I had no intentions of pushing my luck.
* Only to the nearby Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree is taller, but more about that later.
