Ouyen Mallee Root Festival
On March 25, 2017
The first-ever Mallee Root Festival is coming, and there’s debate over who has the biggest Mallee root.
So what is a Mallee root? They are the root stock of Mallee trees ... a type of Eucalyptus tree often used for firewood and wood-turning.
Ouyen lays claim to Australia's largest Mallee root, but now a farmer at Tooleybuc thinks he’s found a bigger one. So it’s been transported to Ouyen so officials from the Guinness Book of Records can verify all the claims.
The inaugural Mallee Root Festival in Ouyen on March 25.
