Australia's amazing Acacia. Our official national floral emblem is a wattle (Acacia Pycnantha) and this is where our patriotic green & gold Aussie combo originates. With over 1000 species of Acacia found in Australia and 900 that are native, these showy trees and shrubs are found on most terrains of our Country. Flowers can vary in colour from cream, pale yellow to gold and with some species showing purple or red flowers.
The Acacia of Australia is an ancient and diverse native flower. The oldest record of fossil Acacia pollen found in Australia is said to be from around 25 million years ago.
The nutritious wattle seed had been a mainstay in the diet of First Nation Australians for thousands of years. They provide them with a rich source of protein, high fibre and carbohydrates as well as a multitude of vitamins.
The seed was crushed into flour between flat grinding stones and cooked into cakes or dampers in ovens made in a hole in the ground using hot coals and rocks. Some types were eaten green or cooked in the pod.
My name is Lili Jacobsen, but I am better known locally in my hometown of Bundaberg as Wattle Woman. I am a First Nations Person of the Gubbi Gubbi region living on Taribelang, Bailai, Gurang and Gooreng Gooreng country.
I am an artist and for the past three years, I have specialised in polymer clay earrings. I take inspiration from the beauty and power of the Australian Flora and Fauna and also my Indigenous Australian heritage when creating my work.
Each pair that I create, holds a piece of my spirit, energy and story within them which makes all my handcrafted earrings uniquely special and precious.
