It is Coprosma repens or a hybrid with another coprosma. A hardy coastal plant well known in NZ. It stands direct sea spray. There are variegated forms available in garden shops. The dried ripe whole berry has been ground and used for coffee but probably no study done on presence of any subtle toxins or carcinogens. It grows rapidly to 3 to 5m but the variegated forms are at 1 to 3m.

Your tree is Coprosma Repens or Mirror Bush.It is a classified weed in some states and can be a big messy plant but does grow well as a screen or hedge near the sea..Can be cut back hard and will spread if given a chance.Birds spread the berries into our forests which is why it is considered a pest plant.
