The Boorara Tree was once part of a network of 18 fire lookout towers throughout the southern forests. There were eight trees like the Boorara Tree and 10 other lookouts constructed or built on high points in the landscape. It was pegged in 1952 and a cabin built at the top. On most days during the fire season, the towerperson climbed up to the cabin, keeping a watchful eye over the forest for any sign of smoke.
Eventually, the upper truck weakened and became too unstable so the cabin was removed. A replica cabin was built on ground and you can explore this and imagine what it was like to be a towerperson.
There is a 5km return walktrail here which takes you to Lane Poole Falls. In winter, the Canterbury River cascades 12m over the smooth granite rock to the foaming pools below.
