Hi njones. I have added two close ups. I took two photos of it.

Hi Kyliegw and njones, I agree it could either be Chilean Needle Grass or Austrostipa densiflora. The telltail sign for CNG is the ring ('corona') between the seed head and the awn. The photos whilst close aren't close enough to tell. It would be great if you could visit the site njones :)
