Que I nearly trod on

I nearly trod on this little creature which was painstakiingly pulling itself along on our path the other day. This one measuring its home or coocoon (?) is about 6" long.

It was quite unperturbed by my presence and its near miss...or maybe just kept going as a sort of bluff...

I picked it up and it just tucked itself back inside as I took it down the back well away from the path and in the shade.Its Australia, mid winter and on the mid north east coast, temperate zone ...does anyone know what this is?

No idea but being Australian it probably stings like buggery :o)
