Myrtaceae > Syncarpia hillii var. ,

Syncarpia hillii is a tree of the Myrtaceae family which grows on Fraser Island, Queensland, and the surrounding Cooloola area. Common names for this species are Satinay and Fraser Island Turpentine.[1] Large examples of this tree may be seen growing at the 'Central Station' picnic area on Fraser Island.

The tree can grow to 40 metres tall[2], and the trunk may reach one metre in diameter.

A valuable timber tree, particularly for marine pylons. It is fire and termite resistant. However, supply is limited.[3] Satinay timber was used in the construction of the Suez Canal. Resin from the sap has proven useful in treating chronic ulcers.[4]
