An Australian Native

This week's PhotoHunt theme is trees.

The classic Australian tree would have to be the Eucalyptus. There are over 700 species of the tree and they can found across the entire continent. Eucalyptus trees are evergreens, but many species shed their bark--like the tree showcased this week. 


  1. very interesting information. i seldom see trees that shed their bark.

  2. No koala bear near that eucalyptus tree? ;(

  3. Hi Maya, that's a great photo. I have also never seen a tree shed their bark too. And 700 species of this one tree ... so interesting. YTSL :)

    Have a great weekend.

  4. Hi Maya,

    I hope you don't mind me getting in touch. I found your details on your blog and I hope you might be able to help me with my strange request…

    I am a Producer working on a television show called House Hunters International which follows English speaking expats in their quest to purchase a house abroad. I wonder if you or any of your expat contacts might be interested in getting involved?! Please find a little blurb about the show below:

    House Hunters International is a half-hour program currently airing on the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV) in America.
    The series is designed to de-mystify the international home-buying process by going behind the scenes of a house hunt where buyers and their real estate agents tour 3 homes.

    At its core, House Hunters International is a travel show concentrating on the idiosyncrasies of the locales and what makes them special and different.

    You can watch some examples of the show here: - London from South Africa (1600 series) - Dubai from Illinois (2000 series)

    Please get in touch if you have any more questions about the show. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Best wishes and many thanks,
