Yes, this caterpillar looks a good match to other A. semiochroa larvae I can see online.

Thanks, walked up there this morning but nothing happening in the bug world. Come on spring! (though there was a raptor who seemed to be doing aerobatics just for the pure joy of it)

Did the raptor look like a little eagle? See https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Species/15070

Not sure Michael, it was quite a long way away. I've made a report, but only low resolution photos I'm afraid. Hope they help though, Jude :-)
