Rainbow Eucalyptus


About Rainbow Eucalyptus


Located throughout the islands, including forests along the Hana Highway and near Maui Winery (Tedeschi Winery), the Rainbow Eucalyptus is a spectacular sight that lifts the senses. Look for the brown, peeling bark that reveals magnetic colors underneath: green, red, orange, in shades light and dark.


Although the Rainbow Eucalyptus originates from Australia (some say South Africa), you aren’t going to find any koalas climbing up these trees! (photo by River Wanderer/Flickr)
