This coiled thin shell with pale orange bands is that of a marine gastropod/snail that lives in a coiled tube. The snails resemble tube worms (polychaetes) because of the structure but are in a different family.
Washed ashore. Spotted along a high tide mark in a bay ( Port Phillip)
Worm snails do not have an Operculum (lid).
