You can climb this 75 meter tree in Warren National Park, just outside of Pemberton in Western Australia. The view is amazing from the top as you feel like you're on top of a jungle. It's a scary experience as there's little safety between the pegs, but that's what makes it such a thrill. A series of fire lookouts were constructed in the top of a few very tall Karri trees, mainly during the 1930s and 1940s. These lookouts were a way of spotting fires in the tall Karri forest. There are three karri tree towers open to the public..Today you can still climb some of these lookout trees and take in their view: The tree we climbed in the video is the Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree in the Warren National Park. The Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree lookout was first pegged in 1988 as part of Australia’s bicentennial celebrations. At 75m above the ground, with 165 pegs to climb to the top, it's the tallest with a 360-degree view of old growth Karri forest.
