The Gloucester Tree is a giant karri tree in the Gloucester National Park of Western Australia. It was once a fire lookout tree and can now be climbed by the public. Those who do venture up the 153 steel pegs to the top will be rewarded with commanding views of the karri forest and surrounding farmland. At 53 metres in height, the Gloucester Tree is the world’s second tallest fire-lookout tree open to the public—second only to the nearby Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree.
