This is a juvenile tip bug - Amorbus alternatus . Very pretty.They are called tip bugs because they feed on the very tips of the eucalypts. Sadly when they grow up they lose the pretty colours for brown.

Great macros. These insects have great patterns and colors. Very nice details in the images. To me, they have a slight resemblance to "Stink Bugs"

I have seen insects similar to these in the Americas, but I don't know what they are. I doubt they are eaters of eucalyptus / gum trees.
Interesting shots that carry a lot of good detail.
