Giant Tingle Tree, world's largest living eucalypt, Walpole-Nornalup National Park, Western Australia.
The Giant Tingle Tree is the largest known living eucalypt in the world, measuring 24 meters in circumference at the base. See it in Walpole-Nornalup National Park on the Bibbulmun Track, which starts on Hilltop Road between Walpole and Nornalup, in Western Australia. The inside of the base is burnt out from severe fires of 1937 and 1951, but the tree still lives and grows from tissue under the outer bark. Red Tingle trees (Eucalyptus Jacksonii) are only found in and around Walpole-Nornalup National Park, nowhere else on earth. Growing up to 75 meters or more tall, with circular girth of up to 26 meters, Red Tingle trees can live over 400 years. Panorama stitched from three overlapping images.
