This is Roldana petasitis, velvet groundsel. It is a naturalized weed in some areas, and considered invasive in some. Check with your local authorities for your area. Here are a couple of websites about the plant from Australia: Atlas of living in Australia:  with tabs for different information. And Department of Conservation "Plant me Instead" booklet: (page 41 is the velvet groundsel).
