The Broad-leaved Paperbark grows up to 20 metres tall and has characteristic papery bark. It is distributed along the east coast of Queensland and New South Wales, and is also found in New Guinea and New Caledonia. 

Broad-leaved Paperbarks flower between May and September providing a rich source of nectar for Lorikeets, Honey Eaters, Flying Foxes and Butterflies. Its leaves are also a food source for the threatened Koala.
