    Looks like an acacia John but could be any one of literally hundreds - they all look very much alike in that format

    Thumbs up

    A look at the bark and leaves would be helpful.

    Could also be a Calistemon (Bottlebrush) or a Melaleuca.

    Here is a thesis on the subject:
    Adelaide Research and Scholarship: A prototype interactive identification tool to fragmentary wood from eastern central Australia, and its application to Aboriginal Australian ethnographic artefacts

    You might want to contact her thesis advisor directly:

    Professor Robert Hill | The University of Adelaide Staff Directory

    or her at ??? (jennifer.barker@adelaide.edu.au).

    I like the pictures in this part:

    You might also pass this by Bruce Maslin: Email Bruce Maslin
    Show him the bark too. If you have any vague idea where the wood came from, that will reduce the number of possibilities to something less than ~1000 (Acacia species growing in Australia). He may be able to tell you the likely section to which it belongs. Wood density will help narrow the field too.

    Thanks to those who answered my call to identify the timber, it would seem that the log is an Prickly Acacia found locally around Bowen.
