Acacia trachyphloia is a tree native to south eastern Australia. Common names include Bodalla Wattle and Golden Feather Wattle. The specific epithet trachyphloia refers to the rough bark.[1]

It grows from 4 to 18 metres tall, found beside streams and other moist areas between Lake Conjola and Bodalla in the south coast region and nearby tablelands of New South Wales. A number of different eucalyptus trees are found nearby. As with many of the acacias, it forms attractive yellow flowers in between July and October.
