We are about to move into this house in Melbourne. As we are from Darwin, NT I am totally unfamiliar with temperate plants and would love someone to ID the tree in the left of the picture and find out if it's deciduous!

Thank you!

Can you get a close-up of the leaves? There's not enough detail visible to make an identification there.

I call it "drive-by ID". Try practicing it on the highway.

Sharpens your eyesight doing the drive by id's - trust me, the crick in the neck means don't do neck twists to try past the first instinct id...

Interesting, I see it as one of the Koelreuterias, which are common around here.
The few Melias I have seen (they are not common around here) have been very dense, like that picture, but somehow have a different look.

Could also be Koelreuteria but it would be a compact crown for it. As Resin mentioned, a close-up would ensure a proper ID.
