Comments :

NATIONAL CHAMPION - joint.
Good condition. The tree has developed noticeable buttressing which is unusual for Angophoras. An elongated scar/cavity, possibly originating from a bushfire, is present about 20m up on the trunk on the eastern side.

On the edges of a subtropical rainforest which surrounds a small ephemeral stream that enters Wamwarra Creek from the north. Wamwarra Creek flows to the south then enters Smiths Lake, an intermittently opening and closing coastal lagoon. The tree base is at an elevation of approximately 11 m above sea level and the distance to Smiths Lake by the stream is approximately 1350 m.
