Need Help to ID Wasps & Moth

Came across these Paper Wasps in a friends garden the other day and we don't know what species they are so if any one can help with the ID it would be great. They look rather nasty.

The one looking at the camera kept a close watch on me all the time I was trying to get closer.

This Moth seemed easy enough to ID but after looking in our Moth book we could not find the species name either.

Neil for the moth have a look at the Noctuidae, Catocalinae, Erebus species on Don Herbison-Evans' site, one there is close, but you would probably need a Queensland enthusiast to give you the good oil.
For the wasp, have a loo9k on the Brisbane Insects site.

Thank you very much Duncan will check out those sites.
