Pemberton, Pemberton, Pemberton

We were in Pemberton for two nights.  We spent a rainy day driving around the area going on a couple of short walks and checking out the climbing trees and a waterfall.  There are three climbing trees in the area.  These trees were used as far back as the 30's and 40's as fire lookouts across the forest.  These trees are now open to visitors to climb to the lookouts at the top.  We stopped at the Gloucester Tree first, but it was quite rainy.  When we got to the Bicentennial Tree we decided to give it a try.

We only made it part of the way up before coming back down.  The tree is over 75 meters tall and there are 130 pegs to climb up to the top.

We also stopped to see the Beedelup Falls.  There was a very nice walking track and swing bridge across the falls.
