Looks more like a species of Bossiaea (in Fabaceae).

So it could be a native - haven't seen flowers as yet - when do you expect it to flower - I only visit Attunga Point occasionally but I would like to be able to have it identified because there is quite a few plants.

It's likely to be growing naturally there, and is most likely Bossiaea buxifolia. The species commonly flowers from August to November in the Canberra area.
