Help us find Australia’s favourite gum tree!
Voting closes 19 March 2023
National Eucalypt Day is Australia’s biggest annual eucalypt fest held every year to celebrate and promote Australia’s eucalypts and what they mean in our lives and hearts. As part of this celebration, we set out an annual challenge decided by popular vote: which species will be THE Eucalypt of the Year?
There are over 850 eucalypt species across the continent – Eucalyptuses, Corymbias and Angophoras – from the scented peppermints of eastern Australia, to the haunting Ghost Gums of the outback, to the surreally cuboid buds of the Square-fruited Mallee. Which one do you think deserves the crown?
Vote from a list of 25 featured eucalypts or you are welcome to nominate another species!
Voting will close on the 19th of March, and the Eucalypt of the Year will be announced on National Eucalypt Day, Thursday 23rd March.
Please note: The genera (groups) Eucalyptus, Corymbia and Angophora are all eligible. Only species which grow naturally in Australia will be considered. Previous winners include the River Red Gum, Snow Gum, Illyarrie, Gimlet and Mountain Ash – all of which will be ineligible for re-entry this year.
