With the first street trees planted at Wirraglen this month, it’s time to showcase our streetscape masterplan.

We’re sure our residents will love the results of a what has been a very lengthy design and procurement process.

Each street in the estate will exhibit a different tree species, with a mix of deciduous and evergreen plantings to create visual impact and seasonal interest.

Which one will you find out the front of your new home?

HARPULLIA pendula – Tulipwood is a hardy Queensland native tree.

Residents of Brentwood Crescent and butterflies alike will love the display of bright orange seed capsules that appear in winter on this evergreen tree. Bearing white flowers in spring, this lovely street tree typically grows to a height of 10 metres.


RHODOSPHAERA rhodanthema – Deep Yellowwood is a fast growing, native shade tree, known for adapting to tough urban conditions.

The long length of Wetherby Street will be lined by this medium sized evergreen tree with its colourful new growth. This tree showcases small bee attracting flowers in spring, as well as bunches of brown glossy berries.


PRUNUS persica ‘Alboplena’ – White Flowering Peach create a pretty streetscape.

Residents that share a Pickering Street address will enjoy a stunning display from these magnificent street trees. Blossoming in spring, these ornamental peach trees create a spectacular show of large double white flowers. Green serrated leaves turn yellow-green in autumn.


BUCKINGHAMIA celsissima – Ivory Curl Tree puts on a spectacular show.

This robust, ornamental native tree, with its cascading long, creamy scented flowerheads, will line Bromley Court. In cultivation, this tree usually grows 5-10 metres in height and 4 metres in width with glossy, dense, dark green foliage. This stunning tree is terrific for attracting bees, nectar eating birds and butterflies.


PYRUS nivalis – Yellow Pear/Snow Pear will showcase the seasons at Wirraglen.

As Henley Drive meanders through the estate, residents will be amazed by this versatile, elegant, small to mid-size deciduous tree. Heralding the coming of spring with its pure white dense blooms, the foliage that follows has a silvery white downy coating. In autumn, the foliage bursts into colour leaving a glorious scarlet trail through the heart of the estate.


CUPANIOPSIS anacardioides – Tuckeroo will be a popular choice for both residents of Banbury Street and the birds that visit.

Native to eastern and northern Australia, this evergreen tree has large leathery green leaves and springtime green-yellow flowers. Perhaps most notable are the orange-yellow fleshy berries that open to reveal red seeds in the summer.


XANTHOSTEMON chrysanthus – Golden Penda is a medium evergreen tree with conspicuous showy blooms.

When you see the masses of large golden flowers in spring and summer, you’ll know you have come home to St Andrew’s Crescent. Endemic to northeastern Queensland, this tree is part of the myrtle family and is a hit with nectar feeding wildlife. Bronze to reddish new growth contrasts beautifully against the mature dark green glossy foliage.


WATERHOUSEA floribunda – Weeping Lilly Pilly as the name suggests, has a slightly weeping habit.

Where else but Waterford Court would we choose to plant the Waterhouseas? With attractive rippled leaves, the new foliage arrives pinkish-red in colour before changing to bright green as the new growth matures. In summer, the tree produces masses of creamy-white fluffy, fragrant flowers, followed by pale pink, bird attracting fruit.
