Hi @Claw055 , would it be possible to give a more exact value of the plant's height?? If it's over 5m or so and tree-like I think this is almost certainly Banksia Serrata. :)
It could also be Banksia aemula.

HI Tapirlord,

Approx, (3) three metre in height. Although, others around it were larger, so it is most probably is, what you have identified as Banksia Serrata.

It's not easy from the photo, but I'm happy calling this Serrata on account of the size of the plants, and what I can see of the fruit in the corner of your photo. For the future, an image of the fruit, leaves, and a general overview would be very helpful with banksias. They are often difficult to ID to a species level (particularly Serrata and ameula). Hope this helps :).
