"Shrub or tree to 6 m high." (WorldWideWattle, Ver. 2)


"Favours moist sites near streams and on margins of light rainforest, also occurs on hillsides as an understory in eucalypt woodland or open forest." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2) Like Acacia falcata, the seed of this species is very simple to collect, clean and store. Productive bushes can range from waist high to well overhead. The dry pods have a pleasant aroma reminiscent of pot-pourri.

Historical Notes


"Occurs in eastern Australia mainly in coastal and adjacent tableland areas from near Nerriga, N.S.W., N to near Yeppoon, Carnarvon Natl Park and Ravenshoe, Qld. A similar disjunction pattern occurs also in A.falcata and A.falciformis." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
