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.

2022 Dahl Fellowship Applications Close Friday 13 August, 2021

Applications for 2022 Dahl Fellowships close on Friday 13 August.  Fellowships are for up to $25K and they provide an opportunity for talented and deserving Australians to undertake a project related to eucalypts that is not readily fundable elsewhere. Click here to learn more.

2020 Dahl Fellow Dean Nicolle reflecting on how the Fellowship has helped him achieve his goals:

“The Dahl Fellowship Grant has allowed me to research, compile, and submit for publication a scientific peer-reviewed paper presenting the findings of my long-term taxonomic research of the semi-cryptic narrow-leaved mallees (Eucalyptus ser. Porantherae).  This work is both important and has broad implications, as the correct identification of a species, as well as a sound understanding of its features, distribution, ecology, and conservation status, is essential for the understanding and management of all ecosystems that include taxa from the series, both in the wild and when grown in cultivation.”

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.


National Eucalypt Day 2021

Eucalypt Australia celebrated National Eucalypt Day at the Monash Museum of Art in Caulfield, Melbourne as part of our sponsorship of the Tree School Installation in the Tree Story Exhibition.

The event featured a speech by 2020 Dahl Medallist Dr Brian Martin and the awarding by Eucalypt Australia Chair Ken King of the 2021 Dahl Medal to Dr Dorothy Steane.

Catering was by Indigenous social enterprise Charcoal Lane and this video was compiled by Alex Ferguson from our partner and friends Remember the Wild.
