Hideway Bay beauty

Can anyone help me out here?

The location? The dry hillsides at beautiful Hideway Bay near the Eco Resort, on the Gloucester peninsula between Airlee Beach and Bowen.

The subject? Small leafless trees with big yellow flowers.

I didn't have time to really investigate but several photos may help with ID. We were wondering if they were bottle trees.

I'm not good on plants, but I think it's a native kapok, Cochlospermum fraseri.

Thanks for putting me on the right track Snail. It's a Kapok but a different one - Cochlospermum gillivraei. See link
