Disappointing to drive all the way out only to find the ‘tree’ no longer exists and is a pile of rubble (which they still insist you pay to look at). Don’t waste your time - long drive, bad signage. Nothing there to see but what...More

I really wanted to see this. Imagine my disappointment after driving out of our way on a really bad road. There is little or nothing to see. It is very sad, but life goes on. I wouldn't waste my time.

After a 1,5km dirt road, arriving at this great tree. Imagine the fabulous age of this tree, something like 1500-2000 yrs and see it's impressive size and still alive. It's allmost an eco system on it's own. A 1/4 part has broken off, but it...More

What a magnificent tree - sad that is has been so abused - in our opinion. Certainly worth seeing. One section of the tree has broken away from the main stem, so 'the pub' can no longer be used [I'm so glad]......it is however still...More
