Spotted a Crinum in flower. Met have finished I think but this one probably gets less direct sun

Guessing this is the Ghost Fungus which glows at night! Didn't hang around to find out though.

Looks like a native Holly.

Edit: Scrub that, I think I am wrong, sorry.

It is native holly - just a case of local variation I'd suggest. Has all the key identifying features. Podolobium ilicifolium
