Hello Craig, so pleased to know that I spotted the right orchid and more pleased to know that it is an Australian native - thanks for the information. Have I got this right ? - is this a spotting of P.tankervillae and are you going to suggest an ID ?
I have not seen many native orchids here in the wild- must pay closer attention. This one is quite delicate and pretty.

Hello Leuba! Well spotted:) The orchid in pic.2 of the link is also Phaius tankervillae (which you have as a native on the east coast of Australia (sometimes called P.australis there). The other plants labelled as 'orchids' in that link btw are Canna (not related)
