GIANT TREES

The ancient forests around Maydena are home to some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world:

 

The Styx Valley is home to the world's tallest flowering plant and one of the world's tallest trees - the eucalyptus regnans (often called swamp gum or mountain ash) which can grow to over 100 metres in height. 

The Tall Trees Walk, Mt Field National Park - takes you through a spectacular forest of giant eucalyptus regnans, the largest of which were growing when Abel Tasman first sighted Tasmania in 1642, and which are taller than the Wrest Point Casino building in Hobart. 

Pandani Grove Walk, Mt Field National Park - named after the world's tallest heath - the remarkable pandani is just one of many subalpine plants that are found in Tasmania and nowhere else on earth.
