Carpentaria acuminata (Carpentaria Palm) is the sole species in the genus Carpentaria, which is native to tropical coastal regions in the north of Northern Territory, Australia. Due to it's attractive form and red fruits, it is widely grown in Cairns as an ornamental.

 

As in the Northern Territory, the Carpentaria Palm is an important food source for Torresian Imperial Pigeons (Ducula spilorrhoa).
