Not Euphorbia paralias, looks like Leionema diosmeum (Syn. Phebalium diosmeum) or a related taxon.

Were the leaves aromatic when rubbed? This is a good test for the families Myrtaceae (eg gum trees. lilly pillies) and Rutaceae (orange family eg Philotheca, Leionema). From your description, I agree with Plants - probably Leionema diosmeum.

I took a stab to get the ball rolling - looked like it was on sand, but should have checked the map. Interesting - I'm not familiar with Leionema diosmeum. Thanks.

It is on the cover of Flowers of the South Coast & Ranges II.

So I recall. My daughter is making use of my copies!
