Based on the information found at the below website, the crataegus monogyna, or irish hawthorne, "is extremely tough and versatile, long-lived, tolerates hot to cold temperatures, damp to dry conditions, salt, wind, heavy damage, most soils, and semi-shade."

So - it sounds like you might have a decent shot of getting it to survive in the hot, dry Australian outback. Good luck!
