Gold Dust Wattle (Acacia acinacea)

Gold Dust Wattle (Acacia acinacea)

Gold Dust Wattle has bright yellow flowers that can be seen in spring and attract many insects, birds and bees. Native to South Australia, New South Wales and much of Victoria, with the exception of areas of eastern and southern Victoria. All parts of Acacia species are used for nutritional (for example seeds used to make flour), medicinal (bark used to treat e.g. venereal diseases) and technological (bark used to stun fish for hunting) purposes by diverse groups of Aboriginal peoples. Wattle seeds are high in protein, carbohydrate, fibre, magnesium, iron, and zinc.
