Australian Ant Species. Please help Indentify

Hi Team,

Can I get some Help identiting this ant species.

I am trying to figure out if it is a queen or not. So your help is most appreciated.

Location: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Date Found: Today 5/10/2018 in the early morning.
Length: Approximately 20mm

I am located near the coast line which is where I found the ant.

I have done some research to try and figure out what specific species. My guess is: Podomyrma Gratiosa - aka; Muscleman Tree-Ant. But I can’t figure out if it is a queen.

Cheers!

We NEED pictures. But if it's a queen and it's 20mm you probably have a Bull Ant queen. Nice!
