The Peter Francis Points Arboretum
‘The Points’ contains a collection of Eucalypts (registered with the Garden Plant Conservation Association of Australia Inc), and features a range of walking trails. It is a beautiful location for a picnic, as well as an unique botanical reference.
As an amazing reversal of land misuse, ‘The Points’ was transformed from an abandoned quarry and rubbish dump into one of the largest arboretums of eucalyptus and native plants in the world. Visit the Points, and marvel at one of the largest collections of Eucalypts in the Southern Hemisphere, as well as extensive collections of other Australian plants.
‘The Points’ offers spectacular views of Coleraine and the surrounding area, whilst providing a colourful, interactive and relaxing environment for schools, field naturalist clubs, garden clubs, landscape groups, farm tree groups and tourists.
