Could be a viburnum species - worthy of collection and taking to CSIRO herbarium as it is not one I have seen naturalised before

The leaves look similar to those of Dogwood (Cornis florida) which we used to have in our garden.

I tend to agree with natureguy. Dogwoods are cultivated in Watson and Hackett gardens. I always wondered whether the fruits are dispersed by birds since dw's are an important food source for birds in the countries of origin US and Mexico.
