A unique Acacia with curly pods and large, attractive seeds. It's distribution and ecological settings predict this would be a useful Acacia species for mining rehabilitation. However it has not materialised in the quantities required for that purpose. This may change at some point. Within our Queensland to northern NSW areas of operation Acacia oswaldii is generally hard to recognise amongst its co-inhabitants and appears singly or in very small groups.
"Widespread and scattered in arid, semi-arid and subtropical areas in all mainland states S of 19 Lat. S; mainly in calcareous sands or loam." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
