Hi, I found this beetle in a gorge and I was wondering if you could identify it.

This is a Jewel Beetle in the family Buprestidae, and based on images posted to Australia: Land of Stigmodera, we believe it is Calodema regalis or a closely related species. There is also an image named the Regal Jewel Beetle posted to Csiro that supports that identification.
