Boab Tree

Now known as 'Gija Jumulu', the tree is a special gift to all Western Australians from the local Indigenous people, the Gija, who are the traditional land owners. They performed a farewell ceremony to the Jumulu (boab in Gija language) on Monday, 14 July 2008.

The tree also complements the 14 other small boabs that have been previously transplanted in Kings Park, in Roe Garden and opposite Forrest Carpark; the oldest of which has been there for a decade. Boabs (Adansonia gregorii) are deciduous trees that are highly valued by Indigenous people for their edible fruits, medicinal uses and water-holding properties.

The story of the Giant Boab 'Gija Jumulu' captured world-wide media coverage during July 2008 as it journeyed over 3,200 kilometres, from Warmun in WA's Kimberley region, to Kings Park in Perth.

The iconic tree, estimated to be 750 years old, weighs 36 tonnes and stretches 14 metres high and eight metres wide (branch span). Its trunk measures 2.5 metres in diameter.

Weight
36 tonnes
Flowering

The journey
3,200 km from Warmun (East Kimberley) to Kings Park over six days. The tree took two days to plant and was completed on 20 July 2008.

Gija Jumulu is a boab tree (Adansonia gregorii) which was transported 3,200 kilometres (2,000 mi) from Telegraph Creek, near Warmun in the Kimberley region of Western Australia to Kings Park in Perth. This was the longest land journey of a similar sized tree in history.  The tree was removed to make way for the construction of a road bridge on Great Northern Highway  and was replanted at the Two Rivers Lookout, at the end of Forrest Carpark in Kings Park on 20 July 2008.

The 36 tonnes (79 thousand pounds) tree is estimated to be 750 years old and is named from the local indigenous people near Warmun, the Gija, and their word for boab trees, Jumulu. The tree received some superficial damage on its southern side trunk during its journey south which resulted in some bark becoming rotten. Arborists at Kings Park have removed the damaged material and expect the wounds to eventually disappear.  



about Boab trees
It is a succulent, which means that during the rainy season it absorbs and stores water in its vast trunk, enabling it to produce a nutrient-dense fruit in the dry season when all around is dry and arid. This is how it became known as "The Tree of Life". Baobab trees grow in 32 African countries.

are all Boab trees the same
Adansonia gregorii. Adansonia gregorii, commonly known as the boab, is a tree in the family Malvaceae. ... It is the only baobab to occur in Australia, the others being native to Madagascar (six species) and mainland Africa and the Arabian Peninsula (two species).


Is the Boab tree native to Australia?
Six are indigenous to Madagascar, with one species native to mainland Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, where they are known as the Baobab, and one in Australia– our Boab. Adansonia gregorii, the Australian Boab tree, is found only in the Kimberley and western Victoria Region of the Northern Territory.


How long does a Boab tree live?
Description. All Baobabs are deciduous trees ranging in height from 5 to 20 meters. The Baobab tree is a strange looking tree that grows in low-lying areas in Africa and Australia. It can grow to enormous sizes and carbon dating indicates that they may live to be 3,000 years old.
