I think it's a Giant Orange Lacewing (Nymphes myrmeleonoides) also known as the Blue Eyed Lacewing. Could someone please verify?

Your right but they are common along most of Australia's east coast

Ah, couldn't find any sighting on google except for in QLD, which made me uncertain I was right in my ID. Also not sure if it's pregnant/gravid or full of parasites.
