Information

The Grandis Tree is a 76 metre tall Flooded Gum tree widely believed to be the tallest tee in NSW. It is thought to be about 400 years old and has a circumference of 11.5 metres at its base. National Parks have provided a picnic area, with a toilet, at the start of the short path that leads to a viewing platform.

This area is famous for its straight and tall Gums. It was logged from at least soon after WWII and probably earlier. This tree has been preserved but it is surrounded by many healthy regrowth Flooded Gums that have grown to substantial size already. I lived in this area until the age of 15. We left at the end of 1954. Although I often rode my bike along what is now part of the access road quite frequently I had no idea of the tree's existence.

On the map the symbol for the tree appears to be right in the Pacific Highway, but that is not so. The access road, Ferny Creek Road, leaves Wootton Way some 4.8 kilometers from where Wootton Way leaves the Pacific Highway, about 2 kilometres north of Bulahdelah, making the Grandis Tree about a 25 kilometre return drive from that town.
