With a western exposure, these plants need to withstand extremes of temperatures (up to 40ºC in summer) and often fierce blistering winds.

Here you will find River Red Gums (Eucalyptus obtusa) which grow along inland river banks in areas of low rainfall, Bottle Trees (Brachychiton rupestris), and the Apple Gum (Angophora melanoxylon) from northern New South Wales.
