Congratulations, You’ve solved all your clues! There’s just one more step to completing your Secret Picnic adventure… and that’s eating it of course!

You have a choice of 4 different locations to now go and enjoy your basket of goodies.

In order of distance from here:

Pemberton Swimming Hole

Distance 650m

– Dogs allowed
– No pass required

Constructed in the 1920s for families of local timber workers, the historic forest lined Pemberton Pool is one of the busiest spots in town on a hot day. It’s well worth a visit (even if not for a swim) because of the towering karri trees that line the edge of the water and provide a stunning backdrop. There’s plenty of space to have a picnic or barbeque, and live music pop-up events are common in summer months.

Gloucester Tree

Distance 3.4kms

– Dogs not allowed
– Undercover seating available
– National Parks pass needed (You may already have a pass, if not a day pass can be purchased on site at the park if you choose this location)

The Gloucester Tree is a giant karri tree in the Gloucester National Park of Western Australia. At 58 metres in height, it is the world’s second tallest fire-lookout tree, and visitors can climb up one of two new aluminium ladder sections to a small new platform in the upper part of the tree. This links to the main lookout cabin at 53m high and provides views over the surrounding Karri Forest and farmland.

New picnic tables and chairs are nestled in the surrounding bush making it a beautiful spot to take in the forest, the birdlife and the pretty wildflowers.

Cascades

Distance 5.1kms

– Dogs not allowed
– National Parks pass needed (You may already have a pass, if not a day pass can be purchased on site at the park if you choose this location)

Set amid the karri forest these rocky rapids and surrounds provide a stunning place for an outdoor lunch, a leisurely afternoon stroll, or a few peaceful hours of fly fishing. In summer, it’s a cool, shady place for a picnic and in winter, the Lefroy Brook is an impressive sight as it tumbles over the Cascades. Only a short walk from the carpark and picnic tables and benches are set into the surrounding bush.

Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree

Distance 10kms

– Dogs not allowed
– Undercover seating available
– National Parks pass needed (You may already have a pass, if not a day pass can be purchased on site at the park if you choose this location)

At a towering 75m, the Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree is one of the world’s tallest climbing trees and was once used as a fire lookout. You can climb to the top using the metal pegs that protrude from the trunk
forming a spiral ladder. The forest views from the top are breathtaking.

If you can’t quite make it to the top, there’s a platform around midway that also has impressive views. The tree is located in old-growth karri forest within Warren National Park. After your climb you can take in the spectacular forest scenery on one of the Park’s many walk trails.

Settle in for your picnic here on the tables and benches provided and soak up the beauty of the Australian
bush.
