The Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree, a Karri Tree, was pegged for climbing to celebrate Australia's bicentenary in 1988. Although it is built like a fire lookout tree, it was never used as one but only as a tourist attraction. Along with the Diamond and Gloucester Tree, it is one of three lookouts which remain climbable in the Warren National Park of southwestern Australia.[1] The two tonne platform, at a height of 75 metres (246 ft), is reached by climbing 165[2] metal spikes hammered into the trunk.[3][4]
