This image is foreshortened and there is some flash reflection, but I think this is a male Forest Heath Moth (pectinate antennae). It sems to be quite variable but there are a couple of images for this species on the ALA which match this specimen well, see https://bie.ala.org.au/species/urn:lsid:biodiversity.org.au:afd.taxon:27352835-9374-4c2c-8353-898685dabac5#gallery. The image on LBH seems to be a female for which the markingas are somewhat different and seem less distinct.
