Best Things to do in Pemberton and Northcliffe for Adventurers

Climbing Lookout Trees

Climb the Bicentennial, Diamond and Gloucester Trees, the tallest climbing trees in the world. The trilogy of climbing trees are found in the Southern Forests in the Karri forest surrounding Pemberton. 

The trilogy of Karri tree towers were constructed as fire lookout trees for detection of fire in the Karri and Jarrah forest. Diamond Tree is still used as a lookout tree during summer for the prevention of wildfires in the forests.
