    Located about 24kms from Port Victoria, is the inland town of Maitland. I was a little disappointed with the town, but I did like the Clydesdale sculpture in the town park, the mural and old cart. The Clydesdale was the Horse that worked hard in the paddocks, and this is in rememberance of the work he did. It was a nice addition to the town. The tourist information centre was next door, and Clydesdale cottage, which is a B&B.

    SUGAR GUM TREES

    by balhannah Written Jun 23, 2012
    Avenue of Sugar Gums

    Sugar Gums are a eucalyptus that we saw a lot around this area. They originate from South Australia and grow very well here, the Flinders Ranges, Eyre Peninsula and Kangaroo Island. They have a straight trunk, but usually the farmers cut out the main trunk so the tree makes many trunks. The old bark is smooth and grey, shedding in irregular patches to expose the fresh yellowy-brown bark. Flowers are creamy-white in summer. They are used as farm windbreaks and for timber.
    We passed through the beautiful avenue of sugar gums on our way from Port Victoria to Maitland.
