The tree is great but I wouldn't recommend climbing it without the right equipment. What is great is the 10km loop trail that starts not far from the tree. I'd suggest doing it anti-clockwise so you get the really hilly bit out of the way.

THis was a great attraction in a very good park. We found all the WA parks really accessible, well signposted and great tracks and roads.

This is a massive massive tree. Good parking and wayfinding to get there. The tree is epic, we didn't climb as we didnt feel it was safe enough. Plenty of others and and make it up and down safley. Other beautiful old trees nearby

Not a million miles from the Gloucester tree so if its a little busy there give this one a go. Only climb the tree if you have a had for heights and i would recommend wearing gloves as the rungs are hard on the hands.

I wanted to climb this tree, but after 10 steps i chickened out. I think because the iron bars are so wide apart and also not of a equal distance. I think you are very brave if you make it to the top.

Great fun. Exhilarating. Amazing structures with ladders at the top. Fabulous views. If you're a bit anxious, climb to the lower platform first.

My wife and I climbed both the Gloucestor and the Dave Evans trees. What an amazing experience - quite unbelievable to think that in these days of OH&S that you are still allowed to do so. I am not brilliant with heights, but was really helped by my daredevil wife to get to the top. Was glad that I did. View... More

Bit off the beaten track but a great place to have a quick climb up a tree with minimal safety gear. It's literally metal spikes spiralling round the trunk with some mesh surrounding you in case you slip. Only for the adventurous and fit - and it will take you about 5 to 10 mins to get up and then... More

If you are afraid of heights here is a good spot to get over it. The tree is massive and a good climb. At the top you are rewarded with amazing views. This has been the best tree I've ever climbed.

This tree is 65 metres high with two stopping bays. It is relatively quiet the day we visited which is great if you want a quiet climb. There is an area half way up the tree to stop and take a breather. Stunning views from the top. Toilets and a BBQ available. Short drive from other NP attractions.
