This is a Huntsman Spider. We google searched Huntsman Spider Australia and found a site that causes us to think this is probably a Banded Huntsman Spider in the genus Holconia. Despite the large size and terrifying appearance, Huntsman Spiders are shy harmless hunters. You are correct. They do not build webs.
Update: January 9, 2014
We just received a slew of comments from Leon regarding our Huntsman Spiders, and that included a correction on this posting. Leon identified this as a Bark Huntsman, but did not provide a link nor a scientific name. We are concluding that Leon meant Pediana regina which is pictured on the Brisbane Insect website.
