Fancy a climb? (246 feet, no handrail)

Fancy a climb? (246 feet, no handrail)

The Bicentennial Tree is located in the Warren National Park south of Pemberton The viewing platforms on this tree were built in 1988 as part of the celebrations to commemorate 200 years of European settlement.
This tree was chosen because of it wonderful views commanded from its great height.
The tower on the top of the tree is about 75m above the ground. The first rest platform is about 25m off the ground. There are 130 climbing pegs and the cabin at the top weighs 2 tonne. In high winds the cabin sways up to 1.5 meters in either direction. From the top the views are spectacular, reaching 40km out over the forest and surrounding farmland.
