Looks like Delonix regia, AKA poinciana to me.

Not at all hardy outside of the subtropics. Have heard of some growing and flowering in Sydney and Perth though.

Could also be Silk Tree Albizia julibrissin.

No I definitely call it as a Delonix. Its a biggun and has the shape for it.

Ive seen more of these things than I care to think about...
