Goodeniaceae is a family of flowering plants in the order Asterales. It contains about 404 species[2] in twelve genera. The family is distributed mostly in Australia, except for the genus Scaevola, which is pantropical. Its species are found across most of Australia, being especially common in arid and semi-arid climates.


Species in Goodeniaceae are generally herbaceous with spiral leaves. Flowers have a single plane of symmetry (monosymmetric). Corolla lobes often look trilobed due to two marginal wings and are often divided down the middle. The ovary is inferior.
