By April 9th, 2024No Comments

G.R. Davis Pty Ltd recently donated an early 1900’s steam boiler to the Bland Shire Council. The Old Eucalyptus Distillery is now located at the the Coolinda Reserve to celebrate the history of this quintessential Australian industry. Eucalyptus oils have been produced in the West Wyalong area since the 1890’s with the original West Wyalong Distillery located on the outskirts of the town and the Davis family has farmed and cultivated Blue Mallee Eucalyptus Oil in West Wyalong since 1964. The fragrant Australian Blue Mallee (Eucalyptus Polybractea) also has the highest cineole content in the world of up to 95%.
