A scene in the Karri forest between the West Australian country towns of Manjimup and Pemberton. Just out of shot is one of three climbing trees that still exist in this region.
Karri (eucalyptus diversicolor) is the world’s third tallest growing tree and has been known to attain heights approaching 90 metres. The climbing trees, which were originally intended as forest fire look out posts, are around 65 metres.
Several of our forests have well maintained walking trails and this particular one is just a shorty, enough to allow novice walkers to sample the delights of these majestic trees.
