Hi if anyone knows what kind of insect it is, can you please tell me on this forum?

Looks like some sort of stick insect
I had one 30cm long on my car the other day

Looks like a "Spur-legged Stick Insect" or other closely related creature.

That Chew Family insects and Spiders of Brisbane site is very useful for all sorts of Insects and Spiders - go from that link, to their home page, then browse around. Lots of great photos. Useful to store for future reference.
Cheers

Thanks for that link Denis, what a great site, I often turn to photgraphing the insects (normally dragonflys) when the birds are few and far between.
