The broad-leaved sallee (Eucalyptus camphora), also called the mountain swamp gum, is an Australian eucalypt. It is found in the marshes and valleys of mountainous areas of New South Wales and southern Victoria.

The Mountain Swamp Gum grows to about 10 m in height. Its bark is smooth, though sometimes persistent on the lower trunk, shedding in long ribbons. It is found on swampy river flats, prone to flooding, and can tolerate prolonged periods of waterlogging.[2]
