Acacia baileyana, commonly known as Cootamundra Wattle, is a shrub or tree in the genus Acacia. The scientific name of the species honours the botanist Frederick Manson Bailey. It is indigenous to a small area of southern New South Wales in Australia, but it has been widely planted in other Australian states. In many areas of Victoria, Cootamundra Wattle has become naturalised and is regarded as a weed, out-competing indigenous Victorian species.
The colour Cootamundra Wattle is used currently by the Australian Capital Territory Fire Brigade as their colour scheme for firefighting appliances.
