Lillypilly are another common and popular street tree of SE Qld.  They have glossy dark green leaves, red or pale green new growth and are suitable for hedging, topiary or specimen trees.

When flowering they can be hugely attractive to insects and I was alerted to the fact that one of ours was flowering, by the buzz of hundreds of bees.
