Starting from the car park along Burma Road, Pemberton, this walk takes you on a stroll in Gloucester National Park. It is a lightly trafficked circuit that offers a glimpse at nature through the marri and karri forest. The plantation is pretty diverse and suitable for enthusiasts. In addition, it is possible to climb the Gloucester Tree to enjoy the amazing view it provides. It is one of the tallest trees that can be climbed in the world. The picnic facilities and seats are also provided at the beginning of the track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
