A tough one to ID?

This may be a little too much to ask but can someone have a crack at this one? Growing in a rehabilitated creek bank in Brisbane, Australia so I'm as suing it's a local native shrub.

Thanks for looking. More pics below.

Fine leaves and tiny flower buds.

One more of the form. Thanks again for looking.

RE: A tough one to ID?

For what it is worth, after noting the location, a rehabilitated creek bank, and viewing the first picture, I suspected one of the Casuarina/Allocasuarina types, even though the foliage didn't look quite right and the tree seemed a bit too open.
Once I viewed the second picture, I immediately thought Melaleuca was a much better option, but the bark visible in picture 3 just dosn't look right either.
Any chance of close ups of the bark and growing tips?

RE: A tough one to ID?

Hi thanks very much for looking into this one. The photo is a little out of focus I'm afraid but might give more of an idea of the leaves. A bit more of the bark/trunk in the next pic.

And yes, I agree. Almost causarina in appearance but I don't think it actually is. And it doesn't strike me as Melaleuca straight away either but I gather this is a very large and variable group.
