I could be wrong but I believe you've got yourself a Blubber-Lip Bream there. Caught one for myself on New Years Eve in the upper reaches of the Coomera River around the pylons of the Train Bridge. Lucky you threw it back because they are horrible eating but great fighting.

yep it looks like a blubber lip caught one in maroochy river didnt know what it is was took it to swan boat hire and said that it was! also called a [ mother in law fish] tastes like fishy mud!
catch you later
Mate, that is a "mowie", mother in law fish, blubber lip bream etc.
Hard pulling fish, specially on light gear, I would drop it in the esky, but would bleed, gut and gill straight away to enhance table quality

Blubber-lip Bream, could also be a Sombre Sweetlip. Almost identical.
