Mulga wood has been used extensively for Australian souvenir and gift ware throughout the middle of the 20th century. Its height of popularity probably began in the Interwar Years and continued through to the 1960s and 70s. Mulga or true mulga is a shrub or small tree, native to arid outback areas of Australia. Its scientific name is acacia aneura. The aboriginal people have long used mulga for digging sticks and woomeras due to its strength.
