My Dad's cousin has a Funnel web spider nest in their back garden in Sydney and those are big, aggressive and highly dangerous!
After spending 3 weeks down there in the 90's it took me quite a few weeks to stop looking under toilet seats and round the back of the bowl, after finding a Red Back in the toilets at Eastern Creek one morning!!!!
A small (aout the size of your finger nail) black spider with red dots.
Apparently they like the 'cooler damp' conditions.
Just what you need during your morning dump !
