Black widow? Hunstman? Funnel-web? Or maybe, possibly, just a common Tegenaria domestica. I wasn't sure.

Last week the World Rally Championship returned to Australia. And there were parts of it I hadn't missed at all.
Almost to a man (and woman), the WRC seems to bring out the Steve Irwin in everybody.
