We live in Portugal (Central) and last week I saw this bug.
I found out it is a mole cricket or some kind, but the pics I see here are different than this one. It has a large pointy thing on its back (sorry, am not a native English speaker). Never seen it before and never saw one again… Glad I made pics. Maybe it is a different one than from Australia etc.?

Hi Stephanie,
You are correct that this is a Mole Cricket, and Mole Crickets from all over the world look recognizably similar.
