It’s always good to start the week with some good news and we’re doing just that. The Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree in Warren National Park in the Pemberton region has reopened for climbers to reach the 20-metre platform.

Warren-Blackwood MLA Jane Kelsbie told So Perth, “This is exciting news for Western Australians to now get the chance to climb one of the State’s most beloved trees.”

“This is the first step towards reopening both the Gloucester and Bicentennial climbing trees, which will benefit our local businesses and community.”

Last year, both the Gloucester and Dave Evans Bicentennial Trees were closed to allow for structural investigations and upgrades to the viewing platforms. These upgrades have been funded through the Government’s Outdoor Adventure Tourism package, which is investing $3 million across both climbing trees.

Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions will work with a range of specialists including engineers and arborists to detail and implement design solutions for both trees to have an upper tree canopy experience at Bicentennial Tree and a mid-tree platform at Gloucester Tree in the next 12 months.

The Pemberton region is one of the most popular and picturesque holiday destinations in Australia’s South West; home to karri and jarrah forests, plenty of places to visit and explore, and wineries and foodie spots that make for the perfect weekend away

Park entry fees have been waived at Gloucester National Park so it’s the perfect time to go and experience the region, including the tree canopy ropes and zip-line course available there.
