This palm is only found naturally in the Northern Territory of Australia. That makes it an "endemic" palm. It loves water and grows along rivers and streams. Here I have it planted high on a terrace and it is growing slowly. It can grow up with a 50 foot tall trunk that has a diameter of approx. 8 inches.
I placed it in the ground in October of 2005 from a 1 gallon pot. It only had two strap leaves. Here you can see one and two years growth in the two pictures taken in November of 2006 and February of 2008.
