I have no idea what this bug is. I’m pretty sure they’re falling out of my roof through the fan in my bathroom.
It doesn’t necessarily look like a bug but they do move.
It’s about as long as a thumb nail and looks like a dirty bit of roof insulation.

Dear TC,
We can’t imagine that this is anything other than a Case Bearing Moth Larva, though it looks different from individuals we are used to seeing, perhaps because it is using distinctly Australian building materials.
