 Would anyone be able to identify this flower on a large shrub/tree. It was growing in Toowoomba area.

 Hi Chris, The shrub looks like Hibiscus mutabilis. Originally from China. Flowers open white and age from pale pink through to dark pink. The leaves are slightly felty. A form with double flowers is most commonly grown. Cheers, Pam

 Thanks Pam, I thought that might have been that as well, but the leaves were different to most Hibiscus. Thanks again.
