Hi KL, this definitely looks like a wattle to me, I can see the phyllode veins. So I put this through the key on wattle two, (my key of choice for Australian wattles), assuming this isn't planted, and got three potential results. Acacia halliana, has similar-looking foliage, but the phyllodes are not pointing upwards, whereas they are in your plant so I feel this is unlikely. Acacia loderi, has phyllodes that look a little thin to me and is tree forming so have also discounted that.This leaves Acacia ligulata, which looks like the most likely ID to me, as it occurs in Riverina and mallee habitats and has similar-looking phyllodes with the hooked tips. The plant in your photograph looks to be only a couple of years old so the appearance of the foliage will change over time as the plant matures, but from the pictures of adult shrubs that I have seen everything looks pretty similar. :)
