Thanks martini. Your lead was excellent although I think it is the Titan http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrophylla_.... http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_... The Goliath has some slight different protuberance on the abdomen http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_...

This looks like the goliath stick insect Eurycnema goliath. I would guess its the penultimate instar (one molt to go) female. Se will have wings and be green in the next molt. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/157... http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/819...
