The leaves don't look like wisteria. It is vaguely familiar though.
Can you show an overall shot so we can see the entire plant and maybe some shots of trunk and bark please?

Tecomaria is very likely Mel. If it is, it is still likely to have some orange trumpet flowers somewhere on it, even this late in the season. Pretty, but a very invasive weedy species.

My advice - try to get rid of it :x Sprouts new plants from the roots, sometimes metres away on the other side of the concrete driveway :o It even started to grow up through the floor boards in one house I rented :x

wow!
good thing its on the chop list. I need to widen the driveway by a metre so i will be cutting back a 3m tall Crassula, 2x 5m tall Olives, a couple of 4m tall "unidentified", concreteing the garden bed and then planting possibly a clumping bamboo in its place...ImageImageImage
