The Mola mola, discovered and named only in 2017, feeds largely on jellyfish and can grow well over 2 meters (more than 6 feet) - although this one was "only" 1.8 meters long, putting it on the smaller end of the scale, according to the South Australian Museum.
Linette Grzelak posted pictures of their find and told The Guardian Australia that her partner thought the dead fish "was a piece of shipwreck at first". "He said it was extremely heavy and the skin was rough and leathery like a rhinoceros".
Her partner, Steven Jones has worked as a fisherman for years so "he knew what it was but had never seen one in real life", she said.
The fish was found at Coorong National Park, 80km (50 miles) south of the city of Adelaide.
Not much is known about the new species of sunfish
"The Mola mola is known for its large size, odd flattened body shape and fins", the museum's fish collection manager Ralph Foster told CNN via e-mail.
"They are not generally fished for except in parts of Asia", he said.
Foster said the washed-up sunfish was medium-sized and that the particular species "can get almost twice as big as that".
In Australia, they have been known to cause damage to boats due to their size.
Until then, the rare species was thought to only live in the Southern Hemisphere.
