Hi Kylie, Didn't realise I'd missed a whole lot of your sightings when you were putting them up, so I'm catching up now. I'm not 100% sure if this is Billardiera heterophylla or fusiformis, but either way it is a West Australian native that is commonly planted in "native" gardens and escapes into the bush. Unfortunately unlike a lot of overseas garden plants it is well adapted to Australia's poor soils. I'm not seeing a map with this record, but it is common around Tura Beach. The fact that there is a nearby sighting that says it is from Ben Boyd NP suggests you might have got this sighting at Pambula Beach though. It was similarly developed like Tura, after "native" gardens became fashionable, so it has not much escaping privet and cotoneaster and more of this sort of thing.
