Acacia implexa, commonly known as Lightwood, is a fast-growing Australian tree, the timber of which is used for furniture making. It is widespread in eastern Australia from central coastal Queensland to southern Victoria, with outlying populations on the Atherton Tableland in northern Queensland and Tasmania's King Island. It grows to 5–15 m high and 4–7 m wide. It has sickle-shaped phyllodes up to 20 cm long, and perfumed cream-coloured flowers.[1]
