Looks like a species of Malva?

There are two different plants in the photo. The ones with the large leaves are probably a Malva; the upright reddish-green plants look like a species of Amaranthus.

see Amaranthus retroflexus (Redroot Amaranth) showing the red stems of amaranthus. both plants had low horizontal stems and were tangled together.

Ruth as there is a record for the Amaranthus, i'll put this down as the Malva , which you can eat

The amaranthus is also edible, though I have not tried either.

Leaves are about 12cm across.

The new photos indicate how large the plants are - taller than the stumps to keep cars out!also there are lots of plants stretching along the road into Yarralumla.
