Plaque reads: 'Mountain Blue Gum (Eucalyptus deanei)
These magnificent Eucalypts are famous for their white shafted trunk. These trees spouted soon after the miners abandoned this area in 1896, so we know that they are 111 years old in 2006.'
[I wonder if they used to or intended to change this sign every year?]
