This looks like a Christmas beetle

Yes martin, very similar but the one I saw wasn't as hairy and evil looking as the one of the brisbane website! haha..
This one also is much more vibrant.

The closest beetle that I know is Spotted Flower Chafer http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_...
but yours would have to be a very dark form with dots joining. I suspect the pattern is too different to be a match.
