Looks like an acacia John but could be any one of literally hundreds - they all look very much alike in that format.Updated 22nd March 2017

A look at the bark and leaves would be helpful.
Could also be a Calistemon (Bottlebrush) or a Melaleuca.

Here is a thesis on the subject:
Adelaide Research and Scholarship: A prototype interactive identification tool to fragmentary wood from eastern central Australia, and its application to Aboriginal Australian ethnographic artefacts
You might want to contact her thesis advisor directly:
Professor Robert Hill | The University of Adelaide Staff Directory
or her at ??? (email@example.com).
I like the pictures in this part:
You might also pass this by Bruce Maslin: Email Bruce Maslin
Show him the bark too. If you have any vague idea where the wood came from, that will reduce the number of possibilities to something less than ~1000 (Acacia species growing in Australia). He may be able to tell you the likely section to which it belongs. Wood density will help narrow the field too.

Is this a want to know question or a test? I would need more to go on.

I think its the one I ran over accidentally a couple of weeks ago...."We must never become callous. When we experience the conflicts ever more deeply we are living in truth. The quiet conscience is an invention of the devil." - Albert Schweizer
