 This is a very basic look at our national emblem - the Wattle (Acacia). The name "​wattle"​ is just a common one, given in the early days of the colony when the early settlers used thin branches to make their wattle-and-daub huts. Another shrub "Black Wattle"​ was also named by them, but it is quite a different plant. "​Acacia"​ is the botanical name of our usual wattles. This is a very basic look at our national emblem - the Wattle (Acacia).
