Rosa sp? acicularis?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_acicul... is the most similar Canadian wild rose but not likely this one I saw in Tasmania. The thorns on this one are curved and red, not like the one in this reference.
Along the coastal heath area of east coast Tasmania. Introduced?
Not the same as our Nootka Wild Rose here on the coast of BC. But very similar, except with curved thorns and flowers are in a cluster while Nootka Rose has singular flowers on the end of the branch.
