Great walking trails, good facilities, tree is amazing, I only went up about a third, 65 meters high, amazing that anyone can climb. The trail heartbreak trail is also well worth the drive, bike ride or walk!

Great climb, 76 metres which is achievable with a reasonable level of fitness. Take your time, wear good footwear and don't look down.

Quick stop in at the bicentennial tree today which was named after the climbing platform installation to commemorate 200yrs since colonization. Dave Evans is a local who went on to be a politician. Nice picnic spot.

It was open when we were there in July-however, I wouldn't climb it if it was wet or windy. You wouldn't want to slip. It's a long way to fall!

The daytime temp in January can be from 30 to 40 degrees. Hard to say. The attractions in the area are all basically centred around the forests. Lovely area.
