Where were the photos taken? The first one looks a bit like Quercus trojana.

Dural, Sydney, and taken recently, end of spring and early summer time in Southern Hemisphere.

OK. I asked because I really don't know very many Australian plants, although some of your pictures could be imports. Here's a link to a site showing Q. trojana.

I don't think there are any pictures of it here at DG. In fact, I think there was not even an entry for it until I added it last week. I added it because someone just sent me some seeds of it from California, but it's an Asian/European oak. So it's unlikely to be what you have unless it's cultivated.

#2 is Quercus rubra

#3 is probably Ailanthus altissima

Hi, I'm not familiar with Australian trees, but as someone said, some of your trees may be imports. My guesses are:

#1 Sawtooth Oak, either Quercus acutissima or Quercus variabilis
#2 Red Oak or maybe Black Oak, not certain which
#3 Looks like a Sumac of some kind to me, a Rhus variety
#4 Looks a lot like an Elderberry, a Sambucus of some kind
#5 Not at all sure on this one. I was thinking another Elderberry of Crepe Myrtle.

Don't know if that's helpful, but I hope so. Good luck!

Thank you guys very much. Infs are very helpful.

Crepe myrtle has single leaves. Pictured is a plant with pinnately compound leaves. Elderberry, on the other hand, has pinnately compound leaves.

Not sure what #4 is, but definitely not an Elder!

Thank you very much.

And i asked my neighbour who has the tree with berries in last picture, she said it's Chinese Pistache.

That used to be a recommended plant here, but not I believe it's considered invasive. Very beautiful colors in autumn.

One my friend said that the flowers in the fourth picture is Longan fruit flower.
