User's notes

Several fairly well established trees along the roadside. All located under gum trees, suggesting that they were spread by birds.

Yes this weed is dispersed by birds - a good one to get on top off before it becomes widespread

@MichaelMulvaney Same at the other sighting, this was definitely only common olive (Olea europea), not the african subspecies (Olea europea cuspidata), as it lacked a yellow underside to the leaves. There are common olives planted on the uni campus, so likely they spread from there

Thanks Darcy - I did think that they were yellowish underneath - but thanks to your heads up have had a closure look and I know agree with you
