We sat under a clump of mulga saplings, with our backs to the trunks, and got out our pipes.
Most that I have seen were made of mulga (acacia) hardened by fire.
Close to the entrance to the cave is erected a mulga pole, on which we carved our initials and the date.
“mulga” scrub is a somewhat similar thicket, covering large areas.
At five miles, on the following morning, we passed a hollow with some mulga acacia in it.
Mitchell and I turned off the track at the rabbit-proof fence and made for the tank in the mulga.
The last eleven miles the soil is good, with grass and salt bush in abundance, but much thicker with mulga and other low scrubs.
The view to the north is over a large plain of gums, mulga, and spinifex, with watercourses running through it.
We have come through a very thick scrub of mulga, with broken sand hills and a few low rises of lime and ironstone.
Traversing first the racecourse plain, we then entered some mulga scrub; the mulga is an acacia, the wood extremely hard.
