Drouin Tree Walks

Drouin Tree Walks, by Friends of Drouin Trees

This booklet is designed to showcase the remnant and planted trees that stand tall in and around Drouin. Many of the giant Eucalypts of the Great Gippsland Forest were cut down to make way for farmland and the railway, but some giants still remain today. Drouin has more than 100 giants with trunk girths over 6m; the biggest of these giants is 12.5 m in trunk girth! We are also privileged to have a number of spectacular elms, oaks, planes and other exotic trees planted in early settlement. Some well over one hundred years old. Many with stories to tell as you will discover in these walks.

Friends of Drouin’s Trees also published The Birds of Drouin booklet (2019) as a companion to the Drouin Tree Walks booklet. This is the first of two Bird books (second one due May 2021) celebrating the very special avian inhabitants and the very beautiful places and spaces where they live, in Drouin and surrounds. Photos taken by the remarkable Peter Ware.
