The Queensland Kauri is a large evergreen tree growing straight and tall, with smooth, scaly bark. The leaves are 5-12 cm long and 2-5 cm broad, tough and leathery in texture, with no midrib; they are arranged in opposite pairs on the stem. The seed cones are round and 8-13 cm diameter. The cones disintegrate at maturity to release the seeds. The Queensland Kauri was heavily logged in the past but is not endangered.
