Hi Janice, the scorpion spider or the Pseudo Scorpion is a common spider found all over the world, Australia has 3 kinds, as to the one you have taken a snap of I wish I could see it clearer to give you a technical name. They have a wonderful display of temper but are harmless if you are bitten, in fact the pincers can hurt more than the bite :)
