Stick and leaf insects (order Phasmatodea) are among the largest and most spectacular insects in Australia, but are rarely seen due to their excellent camouflage and habit of living high in the treetops. Australia is home to one species of true leaf insect and around 150 species of stick insect, including some of the world's largest.

    I assume this is a juvenile of the common species that is somewhat similar to D. gracilis
