Bobbit worms are predatory worms that live inside corals. They can grow up to TEN FEET long and their jaws are so strong they can chew right through the corals they inhabit. They're covered in bristles that can cause permanent nerve damage to a person who touches them. Their jaws are so powerful they've been known to accidentally slice a fish in half when they go to grab one as it passes by.

... are you scared yet?

I wish such an epic battle between these mighty powers never occurs, for it would mean the destruction of all life as we know it.

Found in the indo-pacific oceanic region.    
   
So yes, they can, indeed, be found in Australia.
