To me this wattle looks very much like a black wattle either Acacia leiocalyx or Acacia concurrens both species which should be in flower at the moment. One of the ways these two species differ is in the colour of their branchlets. I think this specimen is more likely a leiocalyx due to the reddish colour of its branchlets as apposed to concurrens which has green/grey branchlets. I am fairly sure your first three pictures are of a leiocalyx while the others may be concurrens (less reddish colouration of the branchlets) or otherwise a young leiocalyx (they seem to redden with age).
