It could be Eragrostis brownii or Eragrostis curvula. I can't really tell from these photos.

Many thanks Matt. It is certainly not E. curvula. Barb found E brownii Eragrostis brownii (Common Love Grass) tussocks further south. I will collect a specimen from this site at the next opportunity and scan.
