National Eucalypt Day is Australia’s biggest annual celebration of eucalypts held every year to celebrate and promote Australia’s eucalypts and what they mean to our lives and hearts. As part of this celebration we set out an annual challenge decided by popular vote: which species will be THE eucalypt of the year?
There are over 900 eucalypt species across the continent – eucalypts, corymbias and angophoras – from the towering Mountain Ash of south eastern Australia, to the haunting Ghost Gum of the outback, to the West Australian Mottlecah – “The Rose of the West” – with flowers as big as your palm. It will be exciting to see some fervent social media action culminating in the eucalypt that takes out this year’s “Eucalypt of the Year”.
