The Town of Gulf Stream is the only remaining stretch where the Australian Pine Canopy still remains. It has since been designated as an historic and scenic highway, allowing the Town to protect and cultivate new plants to maintain and expand a stand of more than 300 pines.
In 1916, the State of Florida began to open a stretch of roadway along the Atlantic Ocean coastline, as a more scenic alternative to Route 1, now called the Federal Highway. The road eventually became known as State Road A1A. To address high winds along the route, Australian Pines were planted along both sides of A1A, from Jacksonville to Miami.

The Caves of Gulfstream
For many decades, subterranean caves existed in a rock formation along the Town of Gulf Stream’s beach. The rock extended through the ocean ridge, where an entrance to the caves lay on the west side. Early travelers would have taken shelter in them and legends of pirate treasure developed about them.
The trees of Gulfstream
The state opened A1A in 1916 in this area, and, in the 1920s, planted Australian pines as a windbreak on both sides of the road from Jacksonville to Miami. The trees formed a canopy over A1A, which remains only in Gulf Stream. In 1992 the state designated the two-mile stretch as a historic and scenic highway, prohibiting the removal of healthy Australian pines. Another law in 1996 allowed the town to cultivate new plants to maintain their rows of more than 300 pines, although they are banned elsewhere as environmental hazards.
