The Kurrajong tree is small to medium in size and widely used as a street tree because it is highly drought tolerant with a dense glossy green canopy. In fact there is most likely some in your street.
It flowers from late Spring to Autumn which is extremely attractive for nectar seeking bees and other foragers.
Endemic from wetter coastal districts to semi-arid regions of Victoria, NSW and Queensland.
Various parts of the tree provide food; the roasted seeds can be eaten, ground as a coffee substitute and used in bread. The tap root is also edible and as nutritious as a carrot.
Traditionally fibre from the inner bark was used for nets to catch fish and birds. The timber is light and soft and has been used for lattice and for interior furnishings.
