Gloucester National Park
(inc. famous Gloucester Tree)

The Gloucester National Park is most well-known for the Gloucester Tree, a 60 metre high tree that was once used as a fire lookout. Today it is a tourist attraction where you can climb the tree to see some spectacular views of the surrounding karri forest. The Gloucester Tree is located just 3km from the Pemberton town centre

Another attraction in the park is The Cascades. These rocky rapids, set amidst the karri forest at the southern end of Gloucester National Park, provide a place for a picnic or some fly fishing.

Activities

Bushwalking (hiking), fishing, tree climbing

Camping

There is no camping available in the park.

Location

3 km from Pemberton.

D'Entrecasteaux National Park

Qualities of remoteness and pristine natural beauty are features of D'Entrecasteaux National Park (pronounced don-truh-cast-oh, with slight stress on the last syllable). Spectacular coastal cliffs, beaches, mobile sand dunes, vast coastal wildflower heaths and even pockets of karri are all part of the scenery. The park has isolated beach camp sites, wild coastal vistas and excellent fishing. Much of the park is managed for its wilderness values, so few facilities are provided.

Activities

Bushwalking (hiking), sightseeing, photography, fishing, swimming.

Camping

There is camping available in the park.

Location

40 km from Pemberton.
