It's a beauty!

Ipomoea abrupta looks a good bet ..

Thanks for identifying....yes it is spectacular out in the bush at the moment after a huge monsoonal dump of rain over Xmas....up to 800mm rain fell in December in some north western regions of the Northern Territory.
PS feel free to use the images......

That's a lot of rain in a month! There's been massive floods here in the north, many rivers breaking their banks with thousands of houses flooded. There was up to 300mm of rain in some places, it's now chucking rain with some snow so I expect there will be more flooding. There's a high ground water level here so the ground soon gets saturated.

I've proposed to submit your photos to the database.
