That looks a bit like Dysphania ambrosioides (Mexican Tea, or Epazote). It also could be something more weedy, like Dysphania pumilio (Clammy Goosefoot).

Here is a link that might be useful: Dysphania

Epazote or some other Chenopodium would be my guess too.

Hi When I go for a walk in a nearby bush walking track I see this herb/weed it has a very aromatic scent. Do you know what it is ? Seems interesting.

Can you take a close up picture of the plant/leaves?

Here is a sample I have that is already 3/4 dry.
It has a slight feverfew/mint aroma and is very hardy (drought tolerant)
Its not rosemary...

The flowers visible rule out rosemary. But other than that, I can't help. I've never seen this one before and I have seen a lot of herbs. It isn't any of the common herb plants - that I'm sure of. Perhaps something indigenous to Australia?
