Author's notes

At a distance this looked like a wattle out; but when I finally got up close I could see they were yellow buds in bunches on a gum tree

Kylie pretty sure this is a planted Spotted Gum (Corymbia maculata). Did it have a smooth white trunk blotched with grey bark? Do you think it was planted?

Hi Michael. I would say no to the first. But does look like it was planted - it was in a clump of different gums (but unattended). Its over the fence on army land on a huge paddock with no structures. The trunk was thinish with many branches almost like a multi-trunk, with thick short bark. Kind of reddish dark grey brown - but thick leaves - maybe these were branches and not the trunk. The two trees were not that tall yet looked full grown. I will see if I got any better photos of the trunk. I thought it was Corymbia ficifolia but the leaf and tree shape is wrong at least as far as I've seen for this species. Never seen such huge clusters of flower buds before.
