Emu Ridge Eucalyptus

See a working eucalyptus distillery that produces about 3 per cent of Australia’s supply, run by ex-sheep farmers. It looks a bit rough, but much of the place is made from recycled materials – for example, the old shearing shed is the plant nursery – and runs on solar and wind-generated power. The property has a 28-hectare plantation of Kangaroo Island narrow-leafed mallee, and the by-products from the oil-production process are recycled back into the plantation. There is a cafe and you might even see one of the orphaned or injured animals that the owners are looking after.
