It has edible fruit that grow along the branches, apparently with a sweet taste, not mine though when I tested the fruit I would describe it more dry and tasteless.
The rough leaves were used by native Australians for smoothing their tools, just as sandpaper is today, hence the name.
Propergation is from seed, ripening Janurary - July; and also from cuttings.
Other species of this tree are:
F. fraseri similar to F. coronata, occurs north from Wyong, NSW. It is found throughout the rainforest, and not mainly along streams as is F. coronata.
F. platypoda (Rock Fig) this species is usually found colonising in rock crevices. It has masses of arial roots and would be excellent to provide shade in rocky shallow soils.
