Alas, your image is far too blurry for us to identify, but we are posting it. Perhaps one of our readers will take a stab at an identification.
Update: We can’t believe Cesar Crash provided what seems to be an excellent possibility: a female Yellow Headed Parasitic Snail Blow Fly that is pictured on Brisbane Insects.

I think I have a good guess, Amenia imperialis: http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_muscoid/SnailParasiticBlowfly6.htm
Happy new year, everyone
We can’t believe you came to that deduction based on the image, which has some Facebook followers commenting about Big Foot and UFOs.
LOL, most based in the description, hehe.
But depending on how much it is “prettt big”, I would not rule out the UFO theory.
