It's a Decidious Box Elder, pinkhippie and a lot of locals here regard it as a noxious weed. I love the shade, the new spring growth and the fact that every now and again it grows a new seedling under it. Not really a rampant invader. and yes, it is a top coffee spot! :D

Forgive a geographically challenged QLDer but could you narrow down a bit on just where the Northern Tablelands is?
