Myrtle Tree

After the rains this tree shoots new growth which are straight and used for spears by the Kalkadoon people. The wood is exceptionally strong and when dried is exceptionally hard. A spear point would be attached with kangaroo tail sinew then covered in spinifex resin which when set would be as strong as cement. Notice the straight new shoots in the photo.
