Spider Identification - Australia NSW

Bathurst, Australia

Hi people,

Today we came across an interesting spider in our house. Which was near our 1year old daughter. My patner heard a scream from our baby and rushed in to find this spider nearby. There are no apparent bite marks that we have found yet. But I am pretty sure it is a funnel web spider. Anyone with a decent amount of knowledge on Australian spiders, could you please help identify. It is next to a paddle pop stick so i am of the impression it is a young male.

Images showing the front of this spider, and especially its eye pattern would be quite helpful. As it is, I hesitate to offer much of an opinion other than that there is just something about its overall appearance that keeps me from calling it a funnel web spider...
