If you see a Eucalypt in flower at this time of the year it is likely to be a Grey Box Eucalyptus microcarpa. They generally flower here from mid-February to April. (Yellow Box Eucalyptus melliodora has just finished flowering and the next Box to flower after the Grey Box in this area is the Long-leafed Box Eucalyptus goniocalyx.)
