What we love about this tree:
The best example of a giant white peppermint tree on Earth
At just shy of 90 metres registered height, this is one of the last remaining examples of an ultra-sized white peppermint. While they are non unfamiliar in the in the northeastern Tasmanian forests, there are few places left to see them as a giant. You can easily visit the White Knight and its grove of other massive trees at Mathinna near Avoca, east of Launceston.
