Hi Brack, it doesn't look like Acacia to me.
Has someone planted a row of them? They look more like what some call 'False Acacias' (Robinia pseudoacacia), and if so they are not natives, and are actually poisonous to humans and animals. I'd suggest getting a better id on them. Maybe some clear close-up pictures of individual flowers and seed-pods with seeds later on as they develop will help someone to narrow it down.

My suggestion, as it stands, is based on leaf shape and pattern, fissured texture of the bark and what I can make out of the flowers. Your flowers look more like orchid flowers than what I'm used to seeing on Acacia.

Good luck.

I don't think it is Robinia pseudoacacia because those have white flowers (or lately pink flowered varities are available). I can't make out the flowers well enough to be sure but it might be a cassia rather than an acacia. Acacias have simple bisexual peaflowers (Fabaceae) and cassias (Cesalpinniaceae) are usually a bit more complex, similar to peaflowers but with frilly bits, and often single sexed.
