Yellow Gums stand out

Yellow Gums Eucalyptus leucoxylon change more from season to season and are more colourful than all other local eucalypts. Their copious shedding of bark in summer is commonly accompanied by a dramatic colouring of trunks for months. After the rain is the best time to view these bright displays. Even now in winter their trunks can evoke abstract art.

The striking smooth cream bark can now been seen more commonly across the bush.
