From the angle you have taken the photos it could be a Craspedia. However, if it has a noticeable flower head base beneath the yellow when looked at from the side, there are several other genera it might be eg Leptorhynchos.

Possibly Coronidium scorpioides.

I don’t think it is Coronidium. All three of the Coronidium species in SE NSW that do not have obvious yellow to yellow brown papery bracts occur at much higher altitudes than this and scorpioides has obvious papery bracts round the margins of the flower head.

I agree with Craspedia sp.

I'm a bit stumped too. The location looks like it could be Leptorhynchos nitidulus country, but the leaves look too wide for that. The flower head doesn't look too bad for that species. I'm pretty sure it isn't Coronidium - no bracts visible like Betty says - but I don't think it is Craspedia either. There are too many cauline leaves. The foliage looks very like Coronidium, just the flower head isn't right.

C. canens? Or could this be a hybrid?

There is no sign of a basal rosette and the flower head looks not quite right for Craspedia. I think it is possibly Leptorhynchos squamatus, which is very rarely coastal its leaves are 2-4 mm wide, while those of nitidulus are 1-2 mm wide.
