Yambla Station, Mountain Creek, New South Wales, Australia
On this evening, this impressive gum caught my attention, standing alone and still alive despite many of its fellow trees having been cleared to make way for farming since settlement. It stood out, surviving where others have not, as a clear symbol of the true rural spirit of Australia.
For me, gum trees mark the quintessential characteristic of the Australian countryside. No truer is this when you explore rural properties, with gums defining them as a uniquely Australian.
