Pasture grass identification

This grass has come up all over this district since the rain. Stands about 1.5m tall - wondering if anyone can tell me what it is??

Welcome to the small farm forum and thanks for the question.

To narrow it down and help with an accurate answer, what area are you from?

They are good pics so I would call the Dept Ag. to get a weeds expert to check the pics, (Id suggest DEPI or whatever theyre called now, Horsham, they have an excellent guy there). Hopefully they will quickly tell you if its an introduced or an indigenous plant. Take pics at different stages. One of the environmental organisations local old timers may be able to identify it, but cross-reference what they tell you, and get the scientific name as well as local common names.
