Eucalypt of the Year 2022 – Eucalyptus regnans – Mountain Ash

Australia has decided!  The majestic and incredible Eucalyptus regnans is our Eucalypt of the Year for 2022. A trip to the Dandenongs or the Black Spur in Victoria unveils their cool calming magic whilst a trip to the Huon Valley and surrounds in Tasmania will leave you in almost uncomprehending awe of their sheer size and age.

Underneath the Gum Trees

As part of its strategic educational vision, Eucalypt Australia funded the Among the Gum Trees unit developed by Primary Connections.  Primary Connections is an innovative program developed by the Australian Academy of Science with the objective of linking the teaching of science with the teaching of literacy in primary schools.

This video Underneath the Gum Trees supplements the Among the Gum Trees unit and addresses science understanding through the context of the interdependent relationship of eucalypt trees and animals.

More information on Among the Gum Trees and Primary Connections can be found here.
