Goodenia macmillanii is a dwarf perennial herb or small shrub that may sucker. The lower leaves are eight centimetres by four centimetres, pinnate with toothed margins. Upper leaves are smaller with toothed margins or deeply lobed.

Flowers are about 2.5 centimetres across and pink with purple streaks. They are very fragrant and attract butterflies. The perfume will permeate the garden. Flowering is said to occur in spring and summer. We have observed a cultivated specimen, in southern New South Wales, that was flowering profusely in autumn.

Propagate from cuttings. Goodenia cuttings usually strike readily and rapidly.
