Mullinger Swamp is home to the Biggest Redgum.  Eucalyptus camaldulensis.

Big Red stands proudly in a paddock that neighbours Mullinger Swamp at Kybybolite.  The tree is about 50metres high and has a circumference of 11.6m at 1.3m above the ground.

This tree is believed to be between 800 and 1,000 years old and much of the base is hollow - which has been very convenient for those who use it to change clothes before swimming in the nearby Mullinger Swamp.

Mullinger Swamp has been used as a family picnic spot and a favourite yabbying waterhole for many years.

This area is also of interest to geologists as there are numerous "runaway holes"  in Mullinger Swamp.  Runaway holes form when a cave entrance develops in a depression and holds water from the surface to the cave system below.

Runaway holes are renowned for being spectacular when they "let go" of the water and it goes down in to the ground water supply.
