About the Walking Trail
The diverse genus Rhododendron, with over 800 species, is well represented in the gully. Some are evergreen, some deciduous and others are endangered in their natural habitats.
Rhododendron species are found in temperate forests of the northern hemisphere, especially the Himalayas and western China, and much of south east Asia right own to the northern tip of Australia. The species vary in size from large trees to tiny ground covering shrubs.
The gully was first planted with Rhododendron species in the early 1960s. The kaleidoscope of colour when they flower in spring and early summer is breathtaking.
