Majestic gum tree was destined for the brewery

This magnificent eucalypt tree in the Mount Barker District of South Australia was doomed to destruction.

The Adelaide Observe newspaper reported on January 11 1919 that the tree had been sold to be cut up into staves for beer barrels.


If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
