It is very common for people seeing a large brown snake to refer to it as a King Brown Snake. The King Brown Snake is a close relative of the Black Snakes and doesn't occur east of the Great Dividing Range in New South Wales but I can't comment on whether it reaches Gatton in Queensland, although from other's comments it is unlikely. Coastal 'brown snakes' in NSW are either Eastern Brown Snakes or very rarely Taipans. Smaller 'brown snakes' include the Yellow-faced Whipsnake and possibly the Black-bellied Swamp Snake.
