Vernacular names

Acacia julifera is a tree belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Juliflorae that is native to north eastern Australia.

The tree typically grows to a maximum height of 7.5 m (25 ft) or as a shrub with a straggly habit to a height of around 3.5 m (11 ft). It has reddish, greyish-brown or black coloured bark that is tough and fibrous. The slender and slightly flattened branchlets are a reddish or purplish-brown colour and become glabrous with age. Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. It blooms between March and August producing golden flowers.[1]

It is endemic to south eastern parts of the Gulf of Carpentaria where it is found in coastal and sub-coastal districts.[1]
