Gold Medallion Tree (Cassia leptophylla)

We have been asked to identify "the very attractive trees with yellow flowers" on the way through Bellingen on route to the Dorrigo Plateau.

We are confident that we have identified then as:
Cassia leptophylla, a tropical tree species in the genus Cassia, which is indigenous to Brazil. It is commonly named the Gold Medallion Tree.

If this has satisfied your curiosity, or you think we have mis-identified the trees, please respond.
