Athel Pine

Athel Pine, Tamarix aphylla, is an introduced species from Africa. A highly successful coloniser in saline waterways, Athel Pine is further proliferating with every wet season along the inlet and surrounding flood plains of Copley Retention Dam, growing into thickets along the shoreline. Seen flowering in May.

Balcanoona Wattle

The highly localised and somewhat ethereal Balcanoona Wattle is not easy to spot in the bush but fortunately can be viewed in a garden plantation at Arkaroola Village.
