From the picture it would seem to be from the Sapindaceae family - probably native. As there are lots of native species in this family it is hard to correctly identify without further information - but maybe a Cupaniopsis

Thanks for the reply.Yes is certainly does look as though it is from the sapindacea family.It is growing on our property in the Gympie district.AsI am looking to replace the Camphor Laurels that I have eradicated it looked as it would make a good indiginous substitute.I'll research the family and maybe find it.
Thanks

Maybe a Cupaniopsis ancardoides(sp?) or commonly known as a Tuckeroo

Could it be a Twin Leaf Coogera - Arytera distylis. This is a beautiful small tree that produces a stunning deep red/pink flush with all the trees in the area flushing together.

Hi Kath.Would you believe the flowers of this tree are very insignificant.Tiny and green.About the size of pin heads,Very similar to the Tuckeroo which may be a relative.I am busting to find out its name now as it has stumped a lot of people.Even several horticulturists.
Thanks for your thoughts
Grant

That is the twin leaf Coogera out the window then. I am very curious, have you tried to key it out in the red book - Trees and shrubs in Rainforests of New South Wales and southern Queensland? You can send us a sample if you like and we will have a go.

I shall take a piece to our council nursery.The more I look at it,the more it resembles a Tuckeroo.Similar leaf but softer and smaller,and very similar flower.
If I have no luck I will send you a sample.
Thanks

I searched the council nursery tree books and found something similar.Unable to find it on the net.
Maybe someone out there has a good book with clear picture to compare.
It was "Dictyoneura microcarpa"The fruit looked the same.
Any one????

Dictyoneura microcarpa is strictly tropical and it fruits hang in tightly packed bunches so I do not think it is this.
