Thanks for the new photo. After seeing it I am very sure the tree is not E. gunnii. Eucalypts cannot be identified by from leaves only, particularly from adault leaves. Hundreds of Eucalyptus spp. have very similar leaves. For positive identification fruits and floral buds are essential. Your new photo clearly shows buds are different from E. gunnii buds. Your buds have long beaked operculum, the buds of E. gunnii short rounded to conical operculum. It is impossible to say from your photos with certainty which species it is. My guess is E. camaldulensis.
