It's a leafcutter/resin bee in genus *Megachile*

Per Wikipedia, "Australia has over 1,700 species of native bee." I'm not sure I'm prepared to tackle that list without more expertise than I have, but I can at least confirm it's a bee.

Haha thank you for trying! Yes we have a looooot of insects including bees but I’ve never seen one that looks like this before
