I sent the photo to the Australian Museum and they identified it as a Bumpnose Trevally, Carangoides hedlandensis.

 

Thanks for your input, Vagabond.

Cheers Bobj.   Glad it's sorted, and we all now know a bit more about small trevallies as a result.

 

IMHO all trevallies come under the heading of "neighbours' fish"   ie passable eating that can be magnanimously given away  :hypocrite:

 

As you say, there are stacks of good to excellent table fish to be had from Aussie coasts.

Another trevally I caught a while back is the 'tea leaf' trev. Only one I have caught and from what I remember, on a par with the giant trevally for a scrap.
