I have never seen this species. In general it looks like the Notothixos I know from the coast, and the arrangement of the flower buds is right for this species. The host is right also. My only concern is that this plant appears from your photos to be hairless. Notothixos cornifolius is covered in short white to tawny hairs, becoming less hairy with age.

I can't say for sure whether i saw hair, and unfortunately i didn't get any other photos (this time).

The Flora of NSW says "with indumentum white or tawny, mainly of short hairs, becoming sparse or absent on leaves ...." when I enlarge image I can see indumentum on leaf stalks
