The best way to distinguish melanoxylon from implexa is by the arils on the seeds- melanoxylon (red aril forming a complete circle or more round the seed) and implexa (white aril folded at one end of the seed). Otherwise, the venation of the phyllodes - melanoxylon (finer veins forming a network between the parallel veins): implexa (finer veins parallel to the larger parallel veins). Your photos are not clear enough to show this. Your comment about this instead of a new photo is fine. Implexa in general favours drier habitats than melanoxylon, but with so much planting of melanoxylon in drier habitats years ago, that distinction does not hold in Canberra.

I have just uploaded a more zoomed in image of the leaf.

Zooming in to the smaller veins in the new photo suggests to me that this might be melanoxylon.
