Two girls climbing down

Two girls climbing down

on wobbly legs :-)

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.

Very interesting!
Height is not so much a problem for me but the old legs :) not to mention the going round and round for the old head :)

wonderful to see this tree is available to climb. I climbed the Glouchester Tree in 1979, is this tree still available to climb?

I just climbed two metres of one of those tall trees
