Do anyone know what type of tree this is. From Mackay in central QLD in the edge of a hilly area.

Hi Ivan,
Waxy leaves like a fig, but I have seen a fair amount of Fig species around Mackay, but this one I haven't seen. Trunk on tree is rough and most Figs seems have a smooth trunk. Trying to find a name as a friend wants to know the name. May have to wait to see what develops from the flowers. I thank you for your help and I'll go and check on Google. When and if the flowers turn into a fruit I'll post another Tread.

Regards Ray.

"Trunk on tree is rough and most Figs seems have a smooth trunk."

There are over 850 species in the genus ficus so I would not write off that your tree is one of them.
