Lovely set. The caterpillar looks like a swallowtail butterfly caterpillar.

Did you notice the smell like rotten lollies when you disturbed it and the feelers came out?

Thanks for the info - I've had tons of these caterpillar all over a shrub outside my home. I have no idea what it but they definitely love it.
Nice photos too!
