Looking at my field guide, I think it's more likely the Buloke Mistletoe, as this geographic location is outside the known range of the Needle-leaved Mistletoe

Or........... 3 minutes later, thought you deserved the significant listing. Would be good to map this species' distribution on your block if you find anymore, as it is rare in Vic.
