 On the fishes of Australia there are 3 photos of the sand bass. The distribution map shows them mostly n in the warmer coastal arras. The middle photo here  https://fishesofaustralia.net.au/Images/Image/PsammopWaigiensBillMark.jpg  looks a lot like yours

 That last link doesn't seem to work. Here is the link to the whole page on Fishes of Australia about the blavck sand bass. https://fishesofaustralia.net.au/Home/species/4644 . On that page there are 3 photos of the species and the middle one looks just like your catch.
