I would like to know the name of this plant. I thought it could be an Australian native. It thrives in colder conditions. Thank you.

Thank you for attaching an image. The plant is a verbena, most likely one of the recent hybrids commonly used as bedding plants in gardens and landscapes. It is a perennial which, depending upon the prevailing temperatures where you live, may survive for a number of years.  

Because you mentioned Australia, I’m including this link to a plant profile for growing verbena there:
