Acacia harpophylla

Brigalow is the Aboriginal name for this acacia. It usually grows in dense stands in northern N.S.W. and inland Queensland. Its timber is very attractive with dark reddish brown heartwood and distinct thin yellow sapwood. It is used in fancy wood turning and furniture making. The Aboriginals also used it to make spear shafts, boomerangs and nulla-nullas.
