White Sally Wattle favorited by Jae Girraween, Queensland, Australia an hour ago

Acacia floribunda, commonly known as "white sally wattle, gossamer wattle, catkin wattle, and weeping acacia", is a member of the family Fabaceae. Small tree occasionally to around 6-8 metres in height, but often grow as a bushy shrub instead. It's a very useful plant for wildlife - heavy flowering provides resources for a wide range of invertebrates, particularly bees; seed pods and seeds are eaten by parrots; sap flow is relished by sugar gliders. Foliage has some use as fodder for livestock such as goats. Very useful for controlling erosion, especially in gullies, and as a wind breaker and shade tree. This is a very hardy species that is well-adapted to extremes of weather, and is native to New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. Unlike some wattle species, it is generally killed by fire in the wild, but has a long-lived soil seed bank. PS: The name of this national park is Girraween, which actually means "place of flowers".
