Golden Staghorn Beetle

Lamprima aurata, the Golden Staghorn Beetle

A beetle that crossed my path in Wilsons's Prom. I can't really say much more about it, I am not even sure about it's name. My guide said it was a Christmas Beetle, but the googled pictures do look different. So more or less by chance I found the Stag Beetle that seems suitable. If not, please let me know!
