Your mystery bush might be Ilex (holly).
Yes, the leaf is very holly-like. The flower is a very delicate pale pink. For some reason I did think that the shrub was native; however, looking up Ilex, the only ones I found for Australia look nothing like it, so I must assume it isn’t native (or maybe isn’t Ilex). Might follow up with our Herbarium. The shrub has taken a very long time to get to below waist height, but is very hardy, drought tolerant and occasionally very pretty!
