Eucalyptus moorei is a small eucalyptus plant mostly seen growing in the Blue Mountains and southern tablelands region in eastern New South Wales.

A mallee[1] growing from six metres to ten metres tall, but usually seen smaller. A seldom seen plant in poorly drained shallow sandy soils, in areas frequented by fire.

Common names include Little Sally, Narrow-leaved Sally and White Sallee. The original specimen was collected from Blackheath, New South Wales. It is one of many plants named in honour of Charles Moore.
