Author's notes

It was on the move! It started climbing all over me while I was sitting beneath Leptospermum. On the hill behind the ANU Kioloa Campus homestead.

Looks like a newly hatched nymph of this species. Brock and Hasenpusch show an image of the green morph (both green and brown morphs can be found in the same area) on p.107 of their CSIRO field guide. Your insect looks very similar but early nymphs of different species are probably similar in appearance. But let’s go with this ID for now.

I went with that ID purely because it was the closest match (by appearance) to the other stick insects reported on the site.
