Can anybody identify this jaw..?

Camperdown, Australia

Hi - I found this today while snorkelling in our local creek - 2-3 metres in depth. In Australia near the east coast on the Queensland/New South Wales border - sub tropical climate. Probably about 400 metres from the ocean - near a boat ramp so may have been brought in by fisherman...or not.

I'd love to get at least an idea of what sort of creature it's come from - cod, shark, anthing else..? I'm not even sure if it's marine or not.

Any help appreciated!
