Get rid of it before the seed pods ripen. The seeds have a tuft of long hairs so spread in the wind. The root is quite thick but you can dig the plant out quite easily.

Did you open one of the pods and see the amazing packing of the seeds and filaments?

Yes, pretty interesting plant. I don't know why (given the number seeds) that this is the only plant I have seen in this area.

Going by the comments on Other Wildflower Oxypetalum coeruleum (Tweedia or Southern Star) on 16 Feb 2015 it started on Red Hill. I have seen it on Mugga Mugga, Isaacs Ridge and Wanniassa Hill.
