The red-flowered kurrajong is common in lowland areas of Kakadu.
These small, straggly trees lose their leaves in the dry season and produce bright, bell-shaped flowers between June and October.
The kurrajong fruit contains edible seeds, but these are covered in sharp hairs that should be treated with extreme caution.
Bininj/Mungguy use kurrajong fibres to make baskets, string, fishing line and clothing.
- Scientific name: Brachychiton paradoxum
