    It’s not until you get to Australia that you realise that eucalyptus has adapted itself to just about  every type of climate variation – wet, dry, mountainous and marine – everywhere we went there seemed to a eucalyptus that was adapted to the habitat. We saw snow gums in the  Snowy Mountains, towering 100ft specimens in the rainforests and admired the marvellously mottled trunks of those fringing the Pacific Ocean. Impressive.
