About Tall Gum Short Walk, Balingup
Along the way you will see mountain gums from Victoria and New South Wales, shining gums from Tasmania, silvertop ash from New South Wales and Victoria, broadleafed peppermint from New South Wales and Victoria.
There are other species of tall eucalypts, all well spaced so they will eventually grow to their full potential. An interpretive sign showing a 114-metre eucalypt superimposed against the 67-metre high Sydney Opera House effectively shows how massive these trees can get.
