The Ginger Adams Eucalyptus Distillery lies within the Dunach Nature Conservation Reserve, between Clunes and Maryborough. 

This distillery is a well preserved example of its kind, with the boiler still intact and its brick surrounds and chimney still standing. Three vats with lids still remain in the ground along with the steel crane, cables still present. The boiler has been covered by a shelter, which will help further preserve the site for years to come.

Picnics at the Ginger Adams Eucalyptus Distillery Site

The Ginger Adams Eucalyptus Distillery makes an interesting, educational place for a picnic lunch, followed by bushwalking or birdwatching through the Dunach Nature Conservation Reserve.

The distillery lies alongside a pretty dam surrounded by seasonal blossoms and wattle trees. A solid wooden picnic table sits in a clear grassy area alongside a basic fire pit.
