Kangaroo tail (Xanthorrhoea australis) is a classic native Australian grass tree you’ll see at Booderee. Take a walk on the Munyunga waraga dhugan loop walk in spring to see these flowing beauties.
The kangaroo tail flowers sporadically, with small white flowers appearing on a tall spike protruding from the centre of the plant. The trunk of this plant can grow up to several metres tall, making it easy to spot in a sea of lush greenery.
Some grass trees in Australia are estimated to be 350 to 450 years old – they’ve seen more parts of history than we can even imagine!
