Eucalypt Australia is a grant-making Charitable Trust that focuses on eucalypts, an Australian icon and a significant aspect of Australia’s natural environment and biodiversity. We envisage a public inspired by and appreciative of eucalypts.

Corymbia Ficifolia, the Red-Flowering Gum is the 2024 Eucalypt of the Year

This incredible Western Australian showstopper is one of the most widely planted eucalypts in Australia and around the world!  In the wild, however, it is only found in a very small area of subcoastal woodland and heathland in far southwest Western Australia.
