Iconic Australiana

I recently had the opportunity to go on a tour of the Currency Creek Arboretum which contains hundreds of species of Eucalypts from all around Australia.  Dr Dean Nicolle, who established the arboretum, gives an amazing tour with some very interesting anecdotes about each species and the research he conducts.

Well, the opportunity has arisen again.  This weekend (Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September) Dean is hosting another tour as part of the Open Gardens Australia program.
