I know that D.amabilis has been recorded in vicinity, but don't know the two well enough to seperate them with confidence here. Having said that, I'd tend towards D.chryseopsis.

Diuris amabilis is a larger plant with larger flowers that tend to have a deeper yellow "core" (see Diuris amabilis (Large Golden Moth)). It also tends to flower a bit later in October.
