I cannot recall having met this little darling before. The common Flannel Flower we have in great profusin on Mt.Baw Baw.
A pretty little thing and always a joy to find something flowering in a dry sclerophyl forest, especially in summer.

Enlarging the pic was awesome!
It does look like flannel - so furry looking. I like the soft contrast of it against the hard texture of the wood.
