The tree can grow to a maximum height of 30 m (98 ft) that has obscure stipules on the branchlets. Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The evergreen phyllodes have a linear shape and are straight or slightly sickle shaped with a length of 10 to 20 cm (3.9 to 7.9 in) and a width of 4 to 9 mm (0.16 to 0.35 in). The dark green coloured phylloeds are thin and pliable and have an apex that is occasionally uncinate and have six to nine anastomosing veins of which one to three are much more clearly defined than the others. It blooms between August and September producing golden flowers.
