With rough bark and gnarled limbs, old man banksia ( Banksia ser­rata) is a dis­tinc­tive tree on the NSW coast. The species’ grey-yel­low blooms can be seen late sum­mer–early au­tumn on Ben Boyd NP’s Light to Light coast walk. Look for yel­low-tailed black-cock­a­toos feed­ing on nec­tar and seeds.
