I'm confident this is not Rytidosperma pallidum, which is has a branched seedhead.

Ok thanks Micheal, it’s very robust and forms a large monoculture in one particular spot only. Unusual.

this is what rytidosperma pallidum looks like when the seedheads are dry:
Rytidosperma pallidum (Red-anther Wallaby Grass)
but otherwise your description fits. the 1st photo suits rytidosperma pallidum, but the 2nd one doesn't.
