Gloucester Tree, Pemberton

4.5
Climb to the top of the Gloucester Tree for a commanding view of the surrounding karri (eucalyptus) forest. At 72 m (236 ft), it stands as the second tallest of Australia's lookout trees. Because this tree originally served to enable forest rangers to survey the land and spot forest fires, you can today climb a spiraling bolted ladder of 153 spikes to a platform at the top. The site recommends against having children climb the ladder, but some families permit their kids to do so. You can go up the tree for free, but the parking lot charges a fee if you arrive by car. Make Gloucester Tree a part of your Pemberton vacation plans using our Pemberton day trip planning app .

  • For parking is $ $, if you want to 慳 cost, recommend to go to nearby diamond tree, such as the scenery point but free. In addition to climbing the tree, you can have picnics and BBQ facilities, but also in the surrounding mountain trails.
