Scattered from Paterson, New South Wales (32° S) to Mackay, Queensland (21° S). There is also an isolated community of these trees at Cape York Peninsula. And they have been known to grow in southern areas of California. Common names include lacebark tree, lace kurrajong, pink kurrajong, scrub bottle tree, white kurrajong, hat tree and sycamore. (see its flowers here).

  1. Aren't they unusual - and pretty in their own way.

  3. I didn't know that was what they were called

  4. Those are all seeds in there? I wonder what eats them....
