Largest Bottle Tree - Roma


Brachychiton rupestris, commonly known as the narrow-leaved bottle tree or Queensland bottle tree, is a tree in the family Malvaceae native to Queensland, Australia. Discovered and described by Sir Thomas Mitchell and John Lindley in 1848, it gained its name from its bulbous trunk, which can be up to 3.5 metres (11 ft) diameter at breast height (DBH). Reaching 10–25 metres (33–82 ft) high, the Queensland bottle tree is deciduous, losing its leaves between September and December. The leaves are simple or divided, with one or more narrow leaf blades up to 11 centimetres (4 in) long and 2 centimetres (0.8 in) wide. Cream-coloured flowers appear from September to November, and are followed by woody boat-shaped follicles that ripen from November to May. No subspecies are recognised.

The town map of Roma marks the site of the Largest Bottle Tree and it is located at the end of Edwards Street near Loam Reserve. We cycled from the Roma Visitor Information Centre to take a look at this tourist attraction.  It is also within walking distance of the Big Rig Tourist Park and not far form the CBD area of town.

To reach this size the tree has to be quite old and could have originated in the 19th century - it was transplant to this site in 1927.  Worth a look.
