Mike what you have here is a Pisolithus sp., a mycorrhizal fungus, which looks like, with the litter around, that may be associated with casuarina or eucalypt spp.. trees. I'll need to chase up the species for you. The fellow that specialises in this group, who helps me, is in Tassie at the moment so it may be a little while. It's great that you've been able to get an image of the spore mass as their colour is critical in identification. You only see the spores like this as the fungus becomes mature.

Horse dung fungus - that's exactly what I thought it was at first! The damaged specimen was already ruptured and they were about a metre apart; I imagine a complete ID would only need a tiny specimen of the spore body? Thanks Pam.
