Located in Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park, Cazneaux's Tree is a river red gum made famous by the photographer Harold Cazneaux in 1937. His photograph titled “The Spirit of Endurance” received international recognition and the tree has been a landmark and tourist drawcard ever since. The Cazneaux Tree has been recently featured in the ABC program – Australia’s Favourite Tree.
This majestic giant stands proud on grassy plateau with Wilpena Pound providing a spectacular backdrop. Take your time to really appreciate and capture the natural beauty of the tree with the guidance of renowned South Australian artist, Gilbert Dashorst.
