I thought of Olearia erubescens, but decided no because the leaves do not appear to have prickly margins, even when I blew them up a lot. https://keys.lucidcentral.org/keys/v3/plants_se_nsw/key/plants_se_nsw/Media/Html/entities/olearia_erubescens.htm

Not the best photo Betty, but when I blow up the image I can see bumpy bits on the leaf edges
