Answer: Dear Jo-Anne

I can give you a couple of suggestions for a native hedge that might suit your garden. Westringia ‘Zena" has grey/green foliage with a small white flower. It is compact and drought tolerant and makes an excellent hedge with minimal pruning. Another native plant you could consider is Callistemon ’Captain Cook’. It too can be pruned to shape after flowering and will grow into a small hedge. There are also a number Lillypillies that can be used for hedging but they would require soil preparation and adequate watering.
