The Western Coolibah has a wide geographical range. The bark is usually smooth and whitish to pale grey. Indigenous to the arid and semi-arid areas of Australia, this eucalypt adapts to most soil types from deep sand to clay – characteristically lining the edges of swamps, lagoons and watercourses. It has an open habit making it a fantastic shade tree, with small white cream flowers in summer. The wood has been used in the past for firewood and fencing. Drought and frost tolerant once mature, but appreciates some water over long, dry periods.
