Author's notes

I suspect this population is derived from some post fire regeneration plantings. However, there are now some small plants present but I can't tell if they have arisen from seeds or suckers.

Pomaderris are incredibly difficult to ID even in the hand.
Ken, If you are sure it is andromedifolia someone with a collecting permit should get a specimen to take into the herbarium.

I used the descriptions in PlantNET and Flora of the ACT. The leaves of the plants in the present images are generally <3.5 cm long consistent with P. andromedifolia (Flora of the ACT). Both PlantNET and Flora of the ACT (as P. affinis) give for P. intermedia leaves of >4 cm length. For leaf width, P. andromedifolia is given as 3-15 mm and for P. intermedia it is given as 15-45 mm according to PLantNET. PlantNET also gives as distinct for the character of the tertiary veins on the leaf undersurface for P. intermedia, this last image from Other Shrub Pomaderris intermedia (Golden pomaderris) on 18 Sep 2015 clearly shows the tertiary veins. The tertiary veins on the leaf undersurface for the present images are indistinct.

I think Betty is correct with her first suggestion namely intermedia rather than andromedifolia. Leaf size and shape can be very variable but the wavy margins on intermedia shoen here are another give away. Andromedifolia always has cream flowers. No common name defintely not yellow pomaderris.
