Yes, quite common around Polblue Swamp in the western part of Barrington Tops.

I should add that Polblue has disturbed habitat and I think that Broom sp. is the predominant weed.

PS:  I also seem to recall messages to this list, and published notes,
on the spread of Blackbirds into montane rainforest around Barrington
Tops in NSW.
