The leaf tips are far too broad for it to be subsp. angustifolia.

Forgot to put in the leaf measurement they were generally 45mm long by 8mm wide and these plants were growing in a rocky area. Don't know whether that makes any difference to the ID though.

Being in a rocky area does make spatulata more likely. Both places I've seen it down here have been rocky spots. The leaves look a bit in betweenish to me - bit big for spatulata, not quite pointy enough for angustifolia, but I'm happy to leave it at spatulata. Subsp angustifolia has a bit of a tendency to be riparian on the far south coast - not right in river beds, but close to them.
