We've been having a trawl of the web and reckon this might be Yoyetta abdominalis, Golden-haired Firetail. It certainly has plenty of golden hairs, and the orange and black pattern on the sides of the abdomen seems to fit, as well as the orange on the forelegs. The distribution is good too - one of the sites mentioned Nimmitabel, the nearest town to our sighting.
