    This looks a lot more like B. spinulosa (hairpin banksia) than B. ericifolia (heath banksia). The latter has very short leaves (like a heath, hence the name) while the leaves of spinulosa are often 5-10cm long. Both species are common in the upper Blue Mountains heaths, with the spinulosa also widely occurring in the shrubby woodland and forest.
