We have been unsuccessful in our attempts to identify your spider, and we hope that by posting it to our site, one of our readers will be able to identify it.
A comment that looks like it is correct: Garden Spider
Do believe this to be Eriophora biapicata, though there seems to be extreme amounts of diversity even within the species itself…
Thanks for the link littlechkn. There is one photo of a male Garden Spider, Eriophora biapicata, that looks nearly identical. When we originally posted the photo, we thought it looked like an Orbweaver, but we weren’t certain. We then verified that with another image of a male Eriophora biaphicata on the FindaSpider website of Australian Spiders.
