I found this while looking for shells and shark teeth is this some sort of fossilised egg maybe? Approx 5cm long

Agreed. Also known as bog iron. Definitely not an egg.

Hi, and welcome here : :tff:. I must agree with the others, by the way, it seems too thick to be an egg.

For some examples of what you found, go look at Iron-oxide Concretions

in the Tibooburra concretions web page at:
