Trees – Ghost Gum

Eucalyptus, commonly known as gum trees, form an integral part of the Australian identity with the bush. The Ghost Gum “Corymbia aparrerinja” is especially majestic and there are about 10 at Uccello Lane all many metres high

From the children’s song Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree through to the distinctive smell of eucalyptus to iconic paintings and photographs, eucalyptus are an essential part of Australian culture, featuring in art, music and literature.
