Yes Jellis is probably right with latifolium. Looks like the ones I see around Sydney which are either latifolium or grandifolium species.

Yeh the soils are normally sandy because of the proximity to the estuary.
Thanks guys! I think Gompholobium latifolium is the right ID :D

Don't think it's the Gompholobium virgatum species because of the leaf shape looks too short.
