Climbing a giant tree near Pemberton is not for the faint-hearted

Climbing the giant trees in Pemberton

Standing in front of a giant tree in the forests around Pemberton is very impressive and you will suddenly feel very small. Eight years ago, we have been around Pemberton in the south-west of Australia the first time. It was an unforgettable experience to climb one of the giant trees. The view from the platform, which is 75 meters above the ground and above the tree top, is breathtaking. The ascent over the iron bars is not for the faint-hearted or people with fear of heights. Last time, I did climb the giant tree and made it to the platform. But will I be able to do the ascent this time? Should I take the risk again? Continue reading

Castle Rock Skywalk – Highlight at Porongurup National Park

Castle Rock Skywalk Porongurup National Park

We love hiking and exploring as many national parks as possible here in Australia. This morning, when waking up at the camp, we look outside to check the weather. It doesn’t look promising to go hiking. Strong wind and dense fog are greeting us today. We pull the blanket over our heads again and stay in bed a bit longer. At the end our desire for coffee is stronger and we finally get up. After breakfast the fog slowly disappears and then it starts to rain. Definitely not the weather we wished for today. Well, bad weather cannot stop us to go hiking and doing the Castle Rock Skywalk in the Porongurup National Park. Continue reading
