Mulberry tree

The first European settlers in South Australia landed and settled at Kangaroo Island's Reeves Point, near Kingscote. The water supply at this site was found to be inadequate and most moved on. Those who stayed planted the Mulberry Tree in 1836 or 1837. It is believed to be the last remaining tree of the earliest plantation of European trees in South Australia. In recent years, the tree has been propped up by a support system of poles and cables. The tree still bears edible fruit.
