Hi Nick, Did you know this species has been split, and the form that twines is now called B. mutabilis, and sericea refers to the form with a shrubby habit. PlantNet mentions some differences in flower colour too, but I don't know that they are right about those. Another difference is furry (scandens) vs glabrous (mutabilis) fruits. I can see what looks like twining stems on your image, so maybe it is mutabilis. I've got a sighting of the latter on ALCW you could check with good flower and fruit shots. So far all the plants I've seen down this way have been definite climbers, so mutabilis, but maybe there are both species further up the coast.

Jackie had a typo. She said sericea when she meant scandens. The other giveaway for this sighting is the long flower stalk. Scandens flowers are basically stalkless.

Thanks to both of you. I was onto this one but you beat me to it. We had a look at them at North Head today, lots twining up bushes there, but none in flower or fruit. I expect mostly B. mutabilis around here. I was going to change it rather than remove the sighting - as soon I could confirm via the fruit.

By the way, do you think I am correct with Hovea linearis at Wairo? Look out for the Allocasuarina photos from Wairo - still working on them.
