Saw this insect yesterday and have never seen or heard of one like it so pretty interested to know a bit more and if anyone knows the name of this bug.

Dear William,
We had never heard of Burpengary, and upon researching your location first, we learned it is in Queensland, Australia.  This is a Mantispid or Mantid Lacewing, and by comparing your individual to the images posted to the Brisbane Insect website, we believe your individual may belong to the species
Ditaxis biseriata.
