The attributes box is for our Site Moderator to write in. You did the best thing you could by writing in the Discussion part. You’re correct, she’s an Orb Weaver, Argiope australis, I think. It is interesting that her body projections match the serrate margins of the Aloe leaves. Her leg band markings also repeat the light – dark pattern of the aloe leaves’s spines.
