Can anyone suggest a subfamily for this wasp? Braconidae I think. Light trap, Townsville, Queensland.

Yes, it's a female Braconidae.
Habitus and hind wing (1-M/M+CU > 1.5) reminds me of Braconinae, but?
Can you check if there is an hypoclypeal depression (a hollow above the mandibules)?

Thanks Bilule. This picture is still wet with alcohol, but I believe there is a depression as you describe.

Yes that's it. So Braconinae should be right.
