    Jack Coe Park
    2 more images

    Leaving Mundubbera behind, we drove our Car along a narrow one lane bitumen road through state forest to Carters corner near Durong.
    It was quite a surprise to see a plantation of Bottle Trees planted in Jack Coe Park, plus a picnic shelter including table & benches. There weren't any toilets, that didn't matter, we just wanted to stretch our legs and have a close look at the Bottle Trees. I took a photo of their bark as I had never noticed the pattern before.
    Out in the paddock were a couple more, throw in a couple of Elephants, and I could have been in Africa!
    Free camping is allowed here.

    On the corner of the Durong - Mundubbera & road to Proston.

    EUCALYPTUS POPULNEA

    Eucalyptus Populnea

    If you happening to be travelling the Burnett Highway between Gayndah and Munduberra, make sure you look out for Eucalyptus Populnea located on the roadside near Mundubbera.

    Its common name is Poplar box or Bimble box, a tree that grows well in this area..The species has glossy, rounded dark green leaves and fibrous rough grey bark on the trunk and larger branches.
    This trunk of this tree was knotted the whole way to the top, very different! - I have never seen one like this before.
    I have found this particular tree is registered on the "National Trust Tree Register," so it is quite an important tree!
