Wattles of the Granite Belt & surrounds

1st July 2020

The arresting golds and yellows of wattle blooms bring pleasure over winter and spring on the Granite Belt.  Here, wattles are plentiful and diverse.  The region is part of what is known as the MacPherson-Macleay overlap, one of three primary centres of wattle species richness in Australia (Gonzales-Orozco et al. 2011).

This book provides descriptions of 60 Acacia species found in and around the Granite Belt.  The area of interest is mainly the Queensland part of the Stanthorpe Plateau (from Dalveen in the north to the Queensland-New South Wales border), but also the traprock country to the east, and the adjacent areas in the New England Tableland south to Deepwater and Torrington in New South Wales.  Because this is mainly a guide to identification, the species descriptions are limited to locality and habitat information, distinguishing features and similar specifies.
