It was the Era of King 'Farmer' George's men. The Era of Banks. Of Cook & Furneaux. And L'Heritièr. And Aiton. The age of discovery. From Adventure Bay they brought the well covered trees back to Europe, to become the first of their kind cultivated out of Australia. The world kept moving, but 235 years and +20 billion cultivated Eucalyptus later, you can still find them at Kew. May the footprints never fade.
