Impressive! What spider is this - and how big is it? It comes off as a massive creature in these shots...

What a strange messy web it weaves.

It's a Golden Orb Weaver, called so because of the golden web it weaves. Normally the Web is quite neat but this was hit by high winds. They can get up to a 3" leg span so are reasonably big.

Golden orb weaver? But you are in Australia, right?

I am pretty sure I photographed some spiders in Florida called golden orb weavers - and they were huge too. From memory, they didn't look too simlilar to these, but of course with common names you can get quite different creatures sharing names.

I need to visit Australia some time. I have been looking at your peacock spiders too on the internet - they are getting quite famous.
