Def an Araneae, and from this one pic can tell it is of infraorder Mygalomorphae. If possible when photographing these lovely spiders, try and get a shot from front on, and also side on. A posterior shot also helps in determining the length of its spinnerets. Context helps also as their burrows can help with ID? Obviously this one doesn't look in the best of health.

Thanks Stuart. It was on our small concrete verandah - not its natural habitat 😒
