Description

View from the top

The Gloucester Tree was once a fire lookout tree and can now be climbed by the public. Those who do venture up the 153 pegs to the top will be rewarded with commanding views of the karri forest and surrounding farmland.

Forest Giants

Karri trees are recognisable by its tall straight trunk and smooth bark coloured in shades of pink, white, orange and grey. The relatively few leafy upper branches are arranged in broccoli-shaped branches.

In spring and summer, the canopy explodes in a mass of white flowers which attract flocks of raucous purple-crowned lorikeets.

Secretive Wildlife

The karri forest is home to many native mammal species such as quenda, quokkas, mardos and dunnarts. These animals are shy and rarely seen. Sit quietly in the forest at Cascades and you may be rewarded with the sight of honeyeaters, wrens, fantails and robins flitting around through the undergrowth.

Karri Forest Explorer

Gloucester Tree and Cascades are both stops on the Karri Forest Explorer, an 86km drove which winds through some of the south-west’s most magnificent karri forest.

Getting There

The Gloucester National Park is accessible via sealed roads from Pemberton.
