Found this inside my house last night, after recovering from a near heart attack I photographed and released it but would love to know what the heck it was as I have searched all australian bug websites and cannot find anything similar. It was approx 6 cm long

Robber Fly

Hi Caroline,
We are not sure if we will be able to provide you with a species name, but this is a predatory Robber Fly in the family Asilidae.  We frequently use the Brisbane Insect website to identify Australian bugs, but we don’t see any species there that look exactly like your individual.
