This is an Australian... flower. I can't be more specific because I haven't been able to procure a suitable Native Australian Wildflowers book. As far as I can tell, no Australians seem to care. Or maybe they just hoard all the information and don't like to give it out to lowly backpackers such as myself. They are probably somehow related to a Eucalyptus or Wattle (Acacia). Seriously. Everything is. Or they're a marsupial. The jury is still out on this one.
Here's a second picture of an unknown flower because flowers are not quite as beguiling as an lovable lizard or quirky birdy.
We've named this one... Hairy Wattle Marsupial Gum. We're pretty good at this.
