Wikipedia reference to this highland eucalyptus is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucalyptus_gunnii. Tasmanian Aboriginal
people would travel to the high country and meet at these cider gum sites. The trunk of the tree, if slashed, exudes a sap that ferments and was used by Aboriginal people in ceremony. Circular tracks were worn down, like moats, around these trees by many thousands of footsteps over time. Mick shows the tracks to these trees from different directions.
