The eucalypts (the genera Angophora, Corymbia and Eucalyptus) are a botanical phenomenon unique to the Autralian continent. Nowhere else in the world does a single genus of trees dominate the vegetation of an entire continent, and nowhere else does a single genus adapt and diversify into the totality of habitats as seen across the wide diversity of the Australian countryside. This adaptation has given us a bewildering diversity of species, with over 800 at last count (and still counting!) The Eucalink pages offer a botanical tour of this diversity, from a scientific position and also from the cultural perspective, from a society that has grown up with and among these unique trees. On these pages, you will find an introduction to the eucalypts of New South Wales, with descriptions of the species, notes on distribution, ecology, images, maps and identification keys. Navigate to a searchable index of the species (with hyperlinks) by clicking on The Species button. Other buttons are self-explanatory, and provide gateways to different ways of approaching the site. While this site is focussed primarily on the eucalypts of New South Wales, some coverage is offered of the overall eucalypt group across Australia and even outside the country. ...

Wattles (the genus Acacia) are prominent and often horticulturally desirable members of the Australian flora. Many species of Acacia are very beautiful and amenable to garden cultivation when reasonable conditions are provided. WattleWeb documents the acacias of New South Wales, with descriptions of the species, notes on distribution and ecology, images and identification keys. Navigate to an alphabetical listing of species (with hyperlinks) by clicking on The Species button. Other buttons are self-explanatory, and provide gateways to different ways of approaching the site. WattleWeb will help those who appreciate the Australian 'bush', as well as naturalists and fieldworkers, to come to know and recognise the large number of Acacia species which may occur in their own area and in New South Wales generally. Gardeners may also be encouraged to grow more interesting, and very often more suitable, species of wattle. ... [Information of the supplier]

The arboretum has the largest collection of eucalypt species in the world, with over 900 species and subspecies (and over 7000 individual plants) having been planted on the site. The arboretum has been established and is managed by Dean Nicolle. ... [Information of the supplier]
