Yes, many people don't realise that wait-a-while and lawyer vine are
palms.  The trick when walking through the forest is to recognise the
palms, so you lookout for the tendrils.  That way you can either go
round them, or find a way to push them aside if you can't.

The name of the palm/creeper is Lawyer Cane, ther are several species: Wait a While, Fish Tailed Lawyer Cane, Yellow Lawyer Cane, another one called Wait a While and Vicious Hairy Mary, they are all Calamus
species. I like the old north Qld. name: Come back Quick.
