The white anthers are diagnostic. Arthropodium sp. B in Plantnet, and Arthropodium sp. 2 in Vicflora. I have not seen it in the flesh, but the flower colour in every photo I have seen is that wishy washy dirty pink.

I have had to do a rethink about this and have just put the problem to the experts. This comes out as Arthropodium sp. SE Highlands with Plantnet and Arthropodium milleflorum with Vicflora. Your plant is the same as all the sightings in the ACT - white hairs on the stamens and purple anthers.

On advice from Dave Albrecht of the Australian National Herbarium that anther colour is the defining character, and hair colour on the stamens is very variable.
