Need short Australia-friendly tree that will earn its keep

I need recommendations for small trees, or bushes or shrubs or something, that absolutely won't grow taller than two metres high, can handle dry conditions (Australian summers) and temperatures between -5 and +40 Celsius. Ideally they should either have pretty flowers or produce something edible (but not citrus, I have enough of those already). Needs to be available in Canberra.

The electric company is making me rip out two trees in my garden because they are too close to powerlines. I want to replace them with something that won't be a problem. The overhead supply is pretty low, so I think I can only get away with 2m max.
Also, do I need to wait for spring to plant the replacements?
