This red soil country now grows a number of species of eucalypt that probably did not occur there originally. There is a lovely specimen of Spotted Gum on Lindendale Road, and Mugga Ironbark at the TV station. The Mugga is in full flower now. Naturally it occurs over the Main Range and further west. A major honey source flowering in the winter, but is another eucalypt lacking useful pollen.
This is a competition between ABA clubs. This year it was held in conjunction with the ABA Conference at The Entrance and Parramatta entered despite the club being split between the ABA Conference and the St Ives Show.
