Why Whirrakee Wattle ?
Whirrakee Wattle (Acacia williamsonii) is rare and virtually endemic to the forests around Huntly. It's our town's 'floral emblem' and celebrated / acknowledged in many special ways.
And best of all it's a low maintenance, drought tolerant, attractive shrub that is perfectly suited to our soils and climate and will attract biodiversity to your garden / property.
