H2 Hinde Tree
About H2 Hinde Tree, Gilston
The H2 Hinde Tree was recognized as a heritage by Queensland Heritage Register on 14 August 2008. A single H2 Hinde tree has survived from the small macadamia orchard originally planted on Colliston sometime in the 1920s (another H2 tree on the site was planted after grafting trials conducted in the 1950s). What remains of the farm is an almost 11.5 hectare parcel of land situated between the Gilston Road and Nerang River. The town centre of Nerang can also be visited while you are visiting this site. It is 9 kilometers from the tree.
The H2 Hinde (Macadamia integrifolia) tree is situated between a corridor of trees running north to south that divides the block into two halves in this area. It is approximately eight meters tall and one of its main branches has a metal tag painted with orange. The H1 and H3 macadamia trees were planted between five and ten meters to the south. None of the H3 Stevenson trees have survived.
