Hi Glen - Thanks (once again) for the ID. I found a good presentation here:

https://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_concealermoths/PurpleBandedConcealerMoth.htm

I am perplexed by the antenna on this moth. It appears to have a short central jointed feathery pair and longer more widely set simple antenae. Barely discernable in my photo 1, but shown clearly here:
