The Duke's Tree
River Red Gum
His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh planted a River Red Gum at this location on 27 March 1954 to commemorate his visit to Perth. After its loss in a storm, a second tree was planted here by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh on 14 November 1962.
Following structural damage to the second tree, it was replaced by this tree in July 2011, grown from a seed collected from the adjacent Queen`s tree.
