"Shrub 1.5–3 m high, branching from base." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)


We mainly observe this wattle on sandy soils throughout the Barakula SF which contains diverse plant communities and is well worth visiting, especially if rain has recently fallen. The area is of interest for its wild flowers and sees visitors for this reason in late Winter-early Spring. Chinchilla and surrounding areas have been the home of many nature enthusiasts and amateur botanists.

Historical Notes


"Occurring in south-eastern Qld in the Chinchilla area and at Jericho. Occurs also on the North Western Plains of N.S.W. near Enngonia. Common in sand in shrubby open forest near Chinchilla, and, in N.S.W., uncommon on sandplains in spinifex communities." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
