What do the flowers look like?

I'm unaware of it having any flowers, that might be because it's winter. The only things I saw were the leaves and the nuts.

You may have to wait for flowers this spring. It doesn't seem to be ringing any bells for anyone.

Leaves look a bit like this Eucalyptus, don't they?

Those aren't Eucalyptus seed pods though.

Maybe a Bottle tree https://www.google.com/search?...
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Ronnie I think you're on the right track. Searching Google Images for Brachychiton populneus sure looks like a match.
