Acacia triptera is heavily armoured with pungent phyllodes and yet it's incredibly attractive when it receives a little water around flowering time.
"...in central and southern Qld and central N.S.W., usually occurring W of the Great Dividing Ra. and sometimes forming extensive and impenetrable thickets in open eucalypt woodland. An isolated occurrence occurs in the Warby Ra. near Wangarrata in north-east Vic. Usually flowers from Aug.–Nov. and fruits Nov.–Jan., rarely later." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
