Large colourful fly, maybe Rutilia (Ameniamima) quadripunctata???
I would also think Rutilia (Ameniamima) quadripunctata. These vary quite a bit according to photos on http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_tachinids/GoldenHeadRutiliaFly3%20.htms, even having four red abdominal spots.

Similar to Rutilia (Ameniamima) quadripunctata but I can't find any with the four abdominal patches being red. Tony Daley via Bowerbird may know the id.
Thanks David. I've just uploaded it to Bowerbird to get an id.
Looks very similar and it does have a 'golden head' ?
Found one very close http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_tachinids/images/DSC_2036d.jpg
Yes, this looks like a match. I can't find the page where this is on brisbaneinsects. Is there an id or is it unknown?
Sorry here is the page David - http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_tachinids/GoldenHeadRutiliaFly3%20.htm
