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.
