Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Honey grevillea is a straggly shrub with long, narrow leaves.

This plant grows up to two metres tall. In spring and winter it produces long spikes of bright yellow and green flowers, which attract nectar-eating birds.


The flowers contain thick, honey-like nectar which can be sucked directly from the flowers (a favourite treat for Anangu children). Anangu also soak the flowers in water to make a sweet cordial-like drink.
