Hi Steve
Nice Emperor Moth.
It is a near perfect match for Opodiphthera helena (Helena's Gum Moth)
See Donald Hobern's Moths site.
also Don Herbison-Evan's Lepidoptera site.
The closely related Emperor Gum Moth apparently had different Larvae (diagnostically, I mean).
There is said to be considerable colour variation in the adult moths of this species - so it is also a possibility.
