The ID Swainsona sericea is probably OK. The stem gets blurry when I blow it up, but I have the impression it is densely hairy with hairs pressed close to the stem. The leaves are OK for sericea.
Another useful character for an ID to species level for local Swainsonas is the calyx, which cups the flower - the relative length of the calyx tube to the calyx lobes. Any possibility of a photo of a flower side on showing the calyx?

I am going with Swainsona sericea rather that the alternative S. behriana as in our region services tends to have fairly flat leaves while those of behriana tend to lie in a more upright position
