Trichonephila edulis. Gold silk orb weaver.
A bunch you can compare with:

I like the link, the kid is funny. I liked it when the hostess asked if they’re dangerous and he mutters, “No, not really.”

In OZ, they think these are rather spectacular. Wait til they get a load of T clavipes we have in south east US. Twice as big but just as harmless. One of few spiders they let children hold at bug fairs.
