I've done some scary things before including the world's biggest bungee and skydiving but this was more frightening, probably for the simple fact that your safety is in your own hands. Slip and you're a gonna. The flimsy chicken wire to your side won't save...More

Unless you have a 4 wheel drive or similar, do not go here. the road in and out is badly rutted and gives you and your car a thorough shaking. The Tree is nothing spectacular; you're better off going to the Gloucester Tree.

If you're fit enough, make the climb, but not if scared of heights. The view is great and I hope it helps save these amazing forests from fires if required.

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!

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.
