Bull Mitchell grass is an erect perennial grass that can grow 60–150cm tall, forming dense, leafy tussocks with a thickened, hairless butt covered in short scale-like leaves. The leaves are long, 3–6mm wide and flat. The seeds occur in single seed heads 7–19cm long with a paired row of seeds. The seeds feel rough to touch.
