Flora-australia-62: Erect shrub or small tree Santalum acuminatum.
I couldn't see the flowers, red fruits are edible, which contains hard seed, which looks, like small round Rudraksh.

wonderful stuff.. thanks... first time I am seeing these sweet and sour berries that I had heard about...
did you get to taste it? and save the inside seed... ??

a few years ago an NGO was talking about this as an example to help  out the aboriginal australians by getting them to wildcraft the berries to sell...but they did not show the colorful fruits... only bottled dried pulp...
