I contacted the Discovery Centre at the Museum of Victoria and sent them images of the butterflies on the passionfruit vine in our garden.  They have replied, quite promptly, and identified it as a Glasswing.

It turns out that the passionfruit may be a native also.  It looks a lot like the red passionflower that had a link on the butterfly page. There is some more info at the Australian Native Plants Society website.
