I'm reconsidering the identity of this caterpillar. It's similar but not identical to images of Doratifera quadriguttata elsewhere - ALA, Don Herbison-Evan's site, and the image in Roger Farrow's book (page 105).
The good news is that I am currently raising two more which ARE identical to this earlier sighting, so with luck we'll have a couple of adult moths soon.

We are now confident this is the larva of Doratifera quadriguttata, based the following statement on Don Herbison-Evan's web site - "Red stinging hairs are protruded from the four at the front on the thorax when the caterpillar is disturbed. In this way, this caterpillar can be distinguished from those of other species of Doratifera."
