Census lists as Australian Exotic but I think we had discussion reg this arid mallee species...

Yes lots of discussion at Acacia brachybotrya (Grey Mulga, Grey Wattle) Note particularly the last comment from me that it is not restricted to mallee country.
This is also in Community - Collections - Discussions

Perhaps not, but it is a semi-arid species; so to be honest whether or not it is restricted to Mallee country may not matter.

And with climate change such species may well find their way here from more western and northern areas... the margins of distribution will change.

I agree Climate Change will effect ecological communities and distribution of species in the future even with other things such as geology and soils unchanged (climate change may also affect soils...).
