Small critter on foliage stems

Does anyone recognise this critter?

I think the tree is some sort of poplar or cottonwood but really not sure. This is in Tasmania, Australia.

Any help or information would be appreciated, thanks.

Bark lice. Also known as tree cattle. They are harmless and may even have some beneficial qualities.
