Acacia concurrens

Scientific NameAcacia concurrens
CategoriesNitrogen FixerShrubTreeWattle
Common Name(s)Curracabah
FamilyFabaceae, Subfamily Mimosoideae


"Single-stemmed, glaucous, glabrous tree to 10m high. Bark longitudinally fissured, fibrous, grey-black."(WorldWideWattle ver. 2)


"Grows in eucalypt forest and woodland, also as regrowth in heath, on hillsides or plateaux in sandy soils or sandy loam, often over shale. Flowers July–Sept. in Qld, late Mar.–early Sept. in N.S.W." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

Acacia concurrens should give cause to pause for operators attempting to distinguish it from similar species such as A.leiocalyx, A.crassa and various others with similar phyllodes occuring in similar distributions. This is especially true when flowers and pods are not present. The species could be far more utilised in coal mine rehabilitation considering the actual extent of it's range.

Historical Notes


"Common in coastal areas from the Mooloolah R., Qld, to Hastings R., N.S.W., between 27S and 29S and E of 152E." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

Otherwise, please note the larger distribution pattern for this species into central and northern Queensland.
