The tallest of Australia’s eucalypts is the Eucalyptus regnans, which reaches heights of over 100 metres. It is the world’s tallest flowering tree and produces white flowers in clusters. The tallest specimen is claimed to be the ‘Ferguson Tree’, discovered in 1871 or 1872. Its height was measured at 132.6 metres. The stand of trees was photographed in the Dandenong Ranges, 40 kilometres to the east of Melbourne.
