On phone so images not easy to Check out, but A. Mucronata is likely. (Narrow leaf wattle)

Acacia retinodes ?

 

 

 

I dont think so, looking at the photos im comparing. The flowers on mine are more rods albeit lose/airy 

Ill take a photo of the immature pods in the morning

You doubting me now... Lol:wink:

 

I'm not 100% defo to be sure, and usually not until somethings in my mitts but this should help on the Mucronata ID front. It would fit the native veg assemblage that way but beware of ferals from garden escapes.

 

I can think of some others that fit southern assemblages, but they are not that form and color.

 

I'm thinking ssp.mucronata.

Worldwide wattle is a great site,so if it's another it will help no doubt. The drawings are better than photos, and highlight key features.

 

You might find a species list for your area and work it from there? Someone may have done one maybe NRM South or the council.
