Presence/Absence PRESENT
Occurrence remarks Castle Hill. 24/08/12. This is a monster weed. It has completely changed the ecology and fire regime in savanna woodland in the Northern Territory. I reported it to the Townsville City Council and it was quickly and decisively dealt with. More than a decade later, it hasn't returned anywhere on Castle Hill. Unfortunately the same thing can't be said for Siam weed, which is now taking over Castle Hill.
