Tree, Acacia Auriculiformis

I dont exactly know what species of acacia is this, but I love the flowers and wanted to post this photo to remind me of the scientific name someday. Someone gave the initial guess as Acacia melanoxylon, but I am guessing now it is a Acacia holocericea by comparing the leaves in the second reference. Will revise this post later.

This tree has found plenty of uses: tanning, source tree for wood and charcoal, and as a medicinal analgesic.
