Actually it is very unlikely to be graveolens in that location, since it grows pretty much exclusively on rock outcrops. I'd say it is P. parviflora growing in a shady site, with unusually large leaves.

According to Plantnet, graveolens has leaf margins with 15-19 pairs of teeth, and parviflorus leaf margins have 4-12 pairs of teeth. That was the basis of my ID.

Hmm. I have both growing in my yard and I found a more or less identically toothed leaf on each species: 6 or 7 teeth on parviflorus, 9 on graveolens. I look more at texture (fleshy for grav, thin for parvi) and hairness (velvety for grav, scabrid for parvi). The teeth number might depend a bit on leaf size/growing conditions. But on looking at Liz' photos again I see they are rather velvety looking, so maybe it is graveolens. I recall now there is some very rocky terrain upstream on Merimbula Creek, so seed might have washed down. It can get lankier looking than usual when growing in shade, as this specimen is.
