This spider is in the family Sparassidae (huntsmen/giant crab spiders); looks like a Heteropoda sp. - see http://www.qm.qld.gov.au/Find+out+about/Animals+of+Queensland/Spiders/Modern+Spiders+Infraorder+Araneomorphae/Huntsman+Spiders/Brown+Huntsman+Spider#.XD4fiml7mUk for an example. Large specimens can deliver a painful but not dangerous bite if handled carelessly.
