The Tallest Tree in NSW
In the nearby Wang Wauk State Forest stands the magnificent Grandis Flooded Gum tree. Estimates of its size vary, with some authorities claiming it to be up to 87 metres high. Officially (according to the NSW National Parks) it stands 76.2 metres high (250 feet) and it is thought to be the tallest tree in NSW. It is said to be about 400 years old and is only 7.6 metres shorter than the General Sherman sequoia in California which, at 83.8 metres, is reputedly the tallest living thing in the world. So it is definitely worth a look.
