Fabulous photo.
Cathy's photo of the larva of Psilosticha mactaria at
http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/enno/mactaria.html
has those same two orange dorsal patches.
Could be related or even a different instar.

Could it be Gastrophora henrickaria?

Yes it is. I'm actually in the process of updating this sighting. I grew an earlier instar up to moth form. It emerged this morning and is indeed Gastrophora henricaria.
