Information

The Acacia Peuce, commonly known as, ‘Waddy Trees’ and ‘Waddywood’ are one the rarest and most beautiful trees in the arid regions of Australia. It grows predominantly in this reserve on stony wind-swept pains, which is one of the driest places in the country – with an annual rainfall of only 150mm and temperatures hitting 40 degrees Celsius.

These trees are highly protected, numbering approximately 1000 mature trees in the Reserve with the major trees being fenced to protect them from stock. There is an ongoing study to measure the growth rates of these trees in regard to seedling regeneration. Please respect the area and do not interfere with stakes, fences, tree bands or any other protection and measuring equipment.
