Grevillea aurea, commonly known as the Golden grevillea or the Deaf Adder Gorge grevillea,[1] is a shrub native to the Northern Territory in Australia.[2]

The tall and open shrub typically grows to a height of 2 to 6 metres (7 to 20 ft) with blue-green oblong dentate leaves that are 7 to 16 centimetres (3 to 6 in) long with 4 to 12 toothed lobes per side. It blooms from April to August and produces coppery buds followed by orange yellow flowers.[1]

G. aurea has a limited range and is confined to parts of the Kakadu National Park where it is found on escarpments and sandstone ridges.
