I'd be guessing at Corkscrew Grass, Austrostipa scabra subsp falcata, on this one, based on the little bit of ex-seedhead I can see roughly central in the photo, plus the small tussock habit, narrow leaves and clearly pretty lousy soil it is growing in.

Extremely lousy soil habitat over all Attunga Point.
