I suspect this is a garden escape. It is not one of the local native peas.

I should have recognised it. I did not realise the flowers opened as much as that. https://apps.lucidcentral.org/plants_se_nsw/text/entities/medicago_sativa.htm This is a fact sheet from a late draft of my app Plants of South Eastern New South Wales which will be released soon.
