I believe the tibia color is important for ID and would therefore confirm the Cooloola diagnisis

I looked at that - it looks so different from the adult version, but the juvenile is very similar.

It definitely looks like it. I don't know much about bugs but I'm sure you're on the right track - that resource you posted is great. What about Beautiful Methiola?

some sort of grass hopper? (very like 'little black-knees' but with brown legs)

Hmm, I'm not sure - the legs are the wrong colour??
