Raspy Cricket

Dear Abi,
This is a harmless female Katydid, and we suspect you mistook her for a wasp because of the stinger-like ovipositor which is used to deposit eggs.  We are not certain of the species, but you may be able to identify it on the Brisbane Insect website.

Update:  October 31, 2016
We just received a comment that this is a Raspy Cricket.
