I have this tree in my garden and was wondering what it is?

Thanks!

Could it be some kind of Nuxia? Some of them are endemic to South Africa but I don't know all the species.

P.S. Welcome! I almost studied in South Africa and sometimes I regret never doing it.
Keep going!

Thanks! I thought it might be a camphor tree?

When you crush a leaf, does it have a camphor smell?

The flowers look like Eucalyptus to me.
