Beautifully Coloured Wasp!

I've never seen a wasp like this before, the markings are so bright and spectacular. It was in no hurry to move from the piece of bark, so I was able to get quite close and capture the shiny blue wings and amazing orange dots and bands. The antennae are white at the base and black at the ends with little knobs all the way along. I must try to find out what it's called.
It appears that this is called a Bottlebrush Sawfly.
