It looks like Muarraya paniculata, Orange Jessamine. Leaves are used in tea and flowers are edible in salads. The fruit mostly consists of a large internal seed but is also eaten.

That is Orange Jessamine/Mock orange (Murraya paniculata). Whilst it is closely related to citrus, and its fruits won't kill you, they are not palatable. Other plants from the same genus are grown for culinary purposes though, such as the curry tree (Murraya koenigii).

It has a wide native distribution including northern Australia, but is a very common hedging plant as well due to its fragrance, attractive appearance and hardy nature, leading it to be declared a noxious weed in some areas of QLD.
