A eucalyptus leaf is a vegan food item with some non-nutritional uses.

The following information pertains to an upcoming version (NetHack 3.7.0). If this version is now released, please verify that it is still accurate, then update the page to incorporate this information.

The eucalyptus leaf now provides only 1 nutrition.


Eating a non-cursed one will cure sickness and nausea.[1] It can also be applied as a whistle, and acts as a magic whistle if blessed and a tin whistle otherwise. There is a 2% chance that a blessed eucalyptus leaf will become unblessed after being used as a whistle.[2]


Eucalyptus leaves are fairly rare, making up only 0.3% of all food items. However, there is a 19.4% chance of getting some from any given tree (first by kicking it until it produces food, then by cutting it down). As such, the odds of finding any are much better if your game happens to have a Big Room, Medusa's Island, Quest, or themed rooms containing lots of trees. There is a 4.7% chance of some in Sokoban. Minetown has a 7.2% chance of eucalyptus leaves, mostly due to a 35.1% chance from kicking and then cutting down both trees in Bustling Town. Barbarians, Monks, Priests, and Rangers are nearly guaranteed to obtain some from the trees in their quest home levels. Pacifists should know that eucalyptus leaves are not generated in any monster's inventory, as opposed to death drops.


The effect of using a eucalyptus leaf as a magic whistle seems to be based on the Australian 1960s TV show Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, which had a recognizable theme call played on a eucalyptus leaf. Skippy came bounding through the bush to whoever played the eucalyptus leaf.
