Acacia kulnurensis, commonly known as the Kulnura wattle, is a species of Acacia native to eastern Australia.[1]


The shrub to tree typically grows to a height of 4 metres (13 ft) and has longitudinally ridged pendent branchlets that are sparsely to densely hairy. The leaves are composed of 3 to 13 pairs of pinnae that have a length of 0.5 to 4.5 cm (0.20 to 1.77 in) and 4 to 15 pairs of pinnules that have a recurved oblong to elliptic shape and a length of 2.5 to 8.5 cm (0.98 to 3.35 in) and a width of 0.8 to 4 mm (0.031 to 0.157 in). It blooms between March and September producing yellow flowers.[1] The simple inflorescences occur in axillary or terminal racemes along an axis with a length of up to 29 cm (11 in). The loosely packed spherical flower-heads contain 5 to eleven cream to pale yellow coloured flowers. The seed pods that form between September and December. The coriaceous, brown, brownish black or purplish black pods have straight sides but are sometimes constricted irregularly between the seeds and have a length of 3 to 13 cm (1.2 to 5.1 in) and a width of 11 to 17 mm (0.43 to 0.67 in).[2]

It has a limited distribution on the central coast of New South Wales where it is found mostly in the Kulnara to Bucketty and Mangrove Mountain areas extending northward to north to the Hunter Valley area around Kurri Kurri and Cessnock. It is usually situated on ridges and upper slopes in and around sandstone outcrops as a part of dry sclerophyll woodland or forest communities.[1]
