Help identifying spider

I just found this spider in my garden in Victoria, Australia. It had anchored its web between a couple of bins. I think it might be a Leaf Curling Spider? I'm not sure. I didn't see any leaves or anything in its web.

This looks to me like a tropical orb weaver in the genus Eriophora - see http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/australian-garden-orb-weaver-spider-eriophora-transmarina-in-web-of-picture-id179793322 for an example.
