Author's notes

I saw two plants along the path, the fourth photo is the second plant, but I think they are the same, and were about 10-15m apart. The flower was very tiny - less than 1cm.

The short spur on the back of one of the petals means it is an introduced violet. The colour of the flower does not fit any of the three introduced violets on the CNM database, or on Plantnet for the whole of NSW.
The leaves do not belong to the flowers. They are some sort of Hydrocotyle. Without leaves, or the outgrowths, often leafy, at the bases of the stems, it is impossible to ID to species level.

Ah, sorry, I thought the leaves in image 3 were the relevant ones. The leaves must have been right down in the crevice. Definitely the leaf in image 4 did not belong.
