Moderate track
Starting from the car park at the end of Burma Road, Pemberton, this walk takes you on a circuit in Gloucester National Park. You can enjoy a half-day of wandering through young and old karri trees and look for hidden creeks and waterfalls. The birdlife is also diverse in the area and makes it suitable for enthusiasts, hosting parrots, lorikeets and wrens. There are useful facilities around the car park; you can have lunch before or after your walk and visit one of the tallest climbable trees, Gloucester Tree, in the world. 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.
