Dom Dom Saddle

Country, Tree Tourism, Trees

For a birthday treat, we visited the Yarra Ranges National Park. We took a short walk up Dom Dom Saddle, just off the highway that runs along ‘Black Spur’. The track runs along a ridge in the water catchment (so no walking off the path!). One side of the saddle had been burnt out in the 2009 bushfires, but others survived with a few blackened trunks. These are Mountain Ash or Eucalyptus regnans, the tallest flowering tree in the world. And they are indeed tall, and skinny. This individual was the thickest that we spotted.
