I saw this bug while doing an unguided night walk in Cape Tribulation in Queensland, Australia in November.

Longhorned Orthopteran

Dear Travelbum,
All we are able to discern from your photo is that this is a newly metamorphosed Longhorned Orthopteran in the suborder Ensifera.  It is hanging from the exuvia or cast off skin it shed to become a winged adult.  It might be a Katydid.  See the Brisbane Insect website for some possible species.
