It has smooth white to pink bark, narrow lance-shaped to curved adult leaves, flower buds in groups of three, white flowers and urn-shaped or barrel-shaped fruit. Corymbia citriodora grows on undulating country in open forests and woodlands, on dry ridges and plateaux of coastal sub-tropical Queensland. It is also naturalised further inland in Queensland, as well as in Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria.
