I didn’t think I had a fear of heights until I climbed the Gloucester tree; 53 meters of iron bars driven into a tree trunk. Still, I made it up and the view was wonderful; and the climb down equally good!! We also did the...More

Magnificent tree once used as a look out to spot bush fires. Can drive on sealed road right up to it. Can be climbed to reach a viewing platform but not for the feint hearted. You must wear appropriate shoes if you want to climb...More

We visited The Gloucester Tree with friends on a recent touring holiday. I was the only one to climb the 53 meters to the top of the tree. It is definitely not for children but if you are reasonably fit then go for it. The...More

Lovely climb. If you look ahead and not down climbing this tree isn't too scary - It's only 50+ meters tall, with rebar posts as 'steps' in a spiral formation going up the tree - light wire-mesh 'caging' surrounds you. No harness! The view at...More

There are no restrictions on climbing the tree. If you slip and fall, you will die or be permanently injured. The climber takes full responsibility of their own actions. If your child is too young to take that... More

Hi Thomas I would just use rope and metal bars for the "stairs" for you tree house. You could go to the nearest hardware store and pick up a set of ladder stairs made from rope and metal or aluminium bars.
