Acacia cuthbertsoni Luehm.[1]

Acacia cuthbertsonii is a perennial shrub or tree native to Australia. It grows 1–5 m tall with fissured, flaky bark. It grows in the central western part of Australia.[2]


The plant is used as an analgesic by the indigenous peoples of Australia. [3]More specifically, A. cuthbertsonii is also used to treat headaches and toothaches [4] by indigenous people of the Australian NT. The tree's wood is used to make splints to treat bone fractures.[5] Certain parts of the tree are used to make bandages.[6]
