Probably OK. Craspedia variabilis is the most common species of Craspedia at lower altitudes un the ACT. I need to look at the shape of the leaves and the hairs on the leaves, and also the detail of the hairs at and near the top of the stem to be reasonably sure.

Thanks for telling me what's diagnostic. I can post a couple of extra images, but I'm not sure I'll have the specific detail you require. May require a second site visit, but not till next weekend. Leaf shape is shown by the rosette in the centre of the second image, but the stem itself linking to a flower stalk is not very clear!
