The river red gum is one of the best known of all eucalypts and it is endemic to Australia. This tree is a considerable size, although still much smaller than the one at Orroroo in South Australia... it is still nevertheless worth respecting her majesty at such a fine age. The tree is over 200 years old and has a girth of 9.2metres, it's a fine thing to recognise that in an age of people dieting to be as thin as they can be.

A beautiful tree with an information sign explaining the relevance to the local community. Why not stop to embrace this icon of the area.

Driving down the main street I saw a sign for this attraction, and being a very short detour, took the time to see what the fuss was about.

Ultimately Australia, its name says it all, and its very good to see such a piece of history protected.

Lovely to see such a grand old tree preserved and protected from logging. Easy parking right across the road, and easily walkable from the middle of town. Worth a quick stop.

This is a tree not so much remarkable for its height, but for its girth of around 10m. That’s quite something.

Found out about the Big Tree on Trip Advisor and am glad we went and had a look. Not far from the main street through Myrtleford this huge old River Red Gum. Estimated to be 200 years old this huge tree is 23.25m in height and has a girth of 9.2m. It is an impressive tree which I am sure could tell a few stories from Aboriginal visits through the early settlement day until today where it stands in a small park surrounded by suburbia.

A wonderful example of an ageless tree splendid in its size, foliage and presence. Well worth a look and a photo!

We stopped here briefly to read about the tree... Yes it's big and probably worth a visit as it doesn't take long at all. The largest river red gum in the district.

Contemplating this grand, old gnarled masterpiece of creation was humbling. It only takes a few minutes to walk from the town centre. Anybody who thinks “so what, it’s just an old tree” needs their head read!

Just 150 metres off the main road through town, its a tree and its big. Have a look if you have the time but it is hardly the most exciting landmark in the area.
