Lightwood Wattle Acacia implexa is a notable local species. It is rare on public land around Newstead – these areas have typically been so affected by long-term timber removal that the Lightwoods have long since disappeared. They can still be found however on the volcanic escarpments, such as Muckleford Gorge, and the extensive granite landscape around Maldon. Lightwoods are a favourite of mine – older specimens often feature tortured, gnarly trunks – watching over regenerating seedlings that have escaped the attention of sheep, rabbits and hares.
