The 'Kowen Guardian'. Has this name because it is adjacent to a stand of the rare Black Gum. The Kowen Guardian is about as big as Apple Box trees get, with a massive girth of 10.5m. Largest girth recorded for this species in the ACT.

However the Black Gums, E. aggregata are one of the ACT’s rarest eucs and only occur at this site

I forgot to add that aggregata is a listed threatened species in NSW due in part to lack of recruitment in grazed sites.
