Following the August bushfire and the recent rains, the bushcare group is plucking these monsters. With roots like parsnips the plant is poisonous to humans (but the birds are not affected by the seeds which of course they distribute).

Yep, this plant seems to be an invariable coloniser after fire. I've seen it in all sorts of burnt vegetation down on the far south coast, from coastal melaleuca scrub to inland euc forest (including our place, burnt last Sept, where I've been chipping it out before it got that big!).
