These bugs seem to cluster together
They are on a fence post in a local park, late September in Melbourne
I’ve not seen this type before
Any ideas?

Dear Bridget,
These are Beautiful Cockroach nymphs,
Ellipsidion australe, or a closely related species in the genus.  This is not a Cockroach species that infests homes.  More images and information can be found on the Brisbane Insect website.
