Not a grass, a sedge - looks like Schoenus melanostachys.

To check for Schoenus melanostachys, look for the distinctive ring of white hairs 9woolly) on the mouth of the sheaths (reduced leaves). The spikelets should be darker, but looks like it is flowering out of season like a lot of species. I agree with 'Plants' ID because the large tussock is very indicative (more so than other large tussock forming species (e.g. Lepidosperma urophorum).
