There are quite a few of these spiders with webs between trees in the forest, usually over kangaroo pads and firebreaks. Finding their daytime hideout is always a challenge. They need to hide well as there are lots of big wasps about that would quickly turn it into breakfast for their larvae.

Rocksand, our B&B assistant has walked into the web of this spider twice now as it is across the path she takes when she walks to here in the mornings. She says the web is very strong and sticky, like some alien has sprayed her with a web and is about to capture her.
