I have suggested this species as Lehmannia valentiana. I dont know much about identifying slugs and snails, but I did a bit of internet searching and thought this species is a good match.
See http://www.idtools.org/id/mollusc/factsheet.php?name=Lehmannia%20valentiana

If it proves correct, there are two or three other sightings on Canberra Nature Map that are the same species.

Hi Trevor
Good research, a fair suggestion. We have no experts on Molluscs. I'll see what Michael M thinks.
