Livistona australis (cabbage-tree palm)

Tall palm tree that grows along the east coast of Australia. Called 'daranggara' by Darug and Cadigal people, the fibrous leaves were used by Aboriginal people in a wide variety of ways,  The edible tip of the tree was known by European settlers as a 'cabbage' (although eating it kills the tree) and used to make the eponymous hats.
