Comments & ID Thoughts

I'm very unsure, it's Web is at least 1.5 meters across, maybe 2? It has stayed in that same place for over two weeks, seems to not be very aggressive

We call them trash line orb weavers here in the states. Yours is not the Cyclosa genus however. could be one of your gold silk orb weavers.

A female from the family Nephilidae. Probably genus Trichonephila.

iNaturalist’s AI guessed it could be the Australian golden orb weaver (Trichonephila edulis) and their photograps looks similiar but we need an expert to ID more correctly.
