It must be a Corymbia I think, Steve do you know of an orange-flowered species from the Kimberlies?

On second thoughts Eucalyptus aurantiaca is possible, or perhaps more likely Eucalyptus miniata. We shall see what Steve says, there may not be enough here to say

Could be E.phoenicea based on: location, inflorescence shape, orange flowers. But leaf colour may not be correct. The leaves in the photo appear more green than grey-green. E.miniata is a possibility but that species has sessile buds and fruit, and the photo shows pedicels. One for Dean Nicolle @Tapirlord I will message Dean.

Confirmed as E.phoenicea by Dr Dean Nicolle. Must stand out like a beacon with those bright orange flowers.
