Author's notes

I have never seen this group of trees flowering. Distributed in an unenviable location along the highway margin. Taller than M. ericifolia in wetter adjacent ground.

Leaves are not biconvex.
Perhaps Melaleuca decora (although rather to far south?).

Thanks 'Plants'. I never considered M. decora. Leaves are nothing like biconvexa - what was I thinking??

I have left this sighting as a suggestion after looking at M. decora, which the leaves fit well. Can it be confirmed without flowers or fruit, given your concerns about location too far south?

The five species of tree Melaleuca in the region can all be identified by their leaves only.
I would not be that surprised that M. decora turned up in that area (I think the most southern I know is north of Jervis Bay.
