Eucalyptus is a studio album by the post-hardcore band Pitchfork. It was released in 1990 through Nemesis Records and re-released in 2003 by Swami Records. The album is the band's only full-length studio album. It was produced by guitarist John Reis and its artwork was created by singer Rick Froberg, who at the time used the stage name Rick Fork.

The album was originally released as an LP in limited numbers and soon went out of print. In 2003 Reis re-released it in CD format on his record label Swami Records, including the tracks from the band's Saturn Outhouse 7" as well. This is the only version currently available.
