Tallest ghost

The Corymbia aparrerinja, or ghost gum, usually grows to 15m. Our star, or square, here, has been measured at 33m tall and is recorded in the National Register of Big Trees as the largest ghost gum in the country.

The stark white trunk of the ghost gum stands out against its background

As it is estimated to be 300 years old, it also appears in the Northern Territory Register of Significant Trees and it’s now appeared in Becky’s squares.

The tree’s home is Trephina Gorge Nature Park, East MacDonnell Ranges, just out of Alice Springs. Definitely worth a visit.
