Buffeted by prevailing southerly winds, the leaning trees of Greenough (Eucalyptus Camaldulensis or Red River gum) have become a popular icon for travellers. The River Gum is found throughout southern Australia growing along watercourses and on flood plains. It is only on the windswept Greenough Flats that the tree develops its distinctive leaning shape.
You can view and photograph the unusually structured trees from the Brand Highway on the Greenough Flats. A purpose built parking area located 21km south of Geraldton is provided for the travellers to take photographs.
