Ficus coronata, commonly known as the sandpaper fig or creek sandpaper fig, is a species of fig tree, native to Australia. It is found along the east coast from Mackay in Central Queensland, through New South Wales and just into Victoria near Mallacoota. It grows along river banks and gullies in rainforest and open forest. Its common name is derived from its rough sandpapery leaves, which it shares with the other sandpaper figs.

Kurrajong rupestris trees- Aboriginals carved holes into the soft bark to use the significant amount of water stored between the inner bark and the trunk. The seeds, roots, stems, and bark have all been used as a traditional source of food for people and animals. The fibrous inner bark was used to make twine or rope and even woven together to make fishing nets.
