Is this a 'black boy'? They were only in one patch together on this track.

Yep, "black boy" or grass tree, not that this trunkless variety is very tree-like. It is most likely Xanthorrhoea concava based on the habitat (dry looking forest), but the flower spike is very short for that species and blunt-tipped, not pointy as it usually is. So I can't get it to species with certainty.
