|Occurrence data from AVH|
Acacia brockii is a slender tree growing to 5 metres, with silvery-grey foliage.
Acacia brockii is distinguished from other Northern Territory Acacias by its flattened hairs on its phyllodes which fall off, its fringed bracteoles with acute apices which extend beyond the flower buds, and by the fine, long, silvery hairs on its calyces.
The specific epithet, brockii, honours John Brock, the Northern Territory author and botanical consultant who first collected this species.
