Eucalyptus globulus is a tree that typically grows to a height of 45 m that forms a lignotuber.

The bark is usually smooth, white to cream-coloured but there are sometimes slabs of persistent, unshed bark at the base.

Juvenile leaves are mostly arranged in opposite pairs, sessile, glaucous elliptic to egg-shaped, up to 150 mm long and 105 mm wide. Adult leaves are arranged alternately, the same glossy to dark green on both sides lance-shaped and curved, 150–300 mm long and 17–30 mm wide on a petiole 1.5–6 mm long.

The flower buds are arranged singly or in groups of three or seven in leaf axils, sometimes sessile or on a short thick peduncle
