Sorry it took so long. Neil's right with looper caterpillars of course. Highly variable... Geometridae; Geometrinae; Hypodoxa; H muscosaria

Another possibility is the Cleora Looper Moth (Cleora illustraria). http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au...

I know I've seen one of these moths before, but I just can't put my finger on it exactly where. I'm certain it's a variety of Looper Moth. The wing patterns and shape look very familiar. Sorry I can't be more help.
