Isn't this what they need at the zoo to feed the red pandas?

Yes I think it is. This bamboo is not uncommon in Hughes!

Yes, looks very much like Yellow Bamboo (Phyllostachys aurea) - currently listed as a prohibited species in the ACT.
   22 Nov 2017
Leaves are up to 15cm long, stems 2-3cm thick, grooves on stems. Doesn't seem to flower. Infestations in this bush area here would be the result of people dumping garden waste.
