Small brown with goldy/yellow trims around the the head and wings. Can't get a closeup unfortunately.
100's of them! Eating all the leaves and most of the fruit.
Killed with flyspray.

I believe it's probably this:
Adults and larvae feed on the young foliage of introduced Chinese Elm trees (Celtis sinensis), a pest tree species in Brisbane. The larvae are black and caterpillar-like. This species is native to central coastal Queensland where it feeds on the native tree, Celtis paniculata.
Recently the beetle has expanded its range further south and is now common in Brisbane.
Length about 10 mm. The oval-shaped, convex body is dull brown with a black underside.
On mine too but just a few. Didn't know they ate the fruit though. Usually it's Sawfly larvae which get the leaves when the Fig is getting close to dormancy.
