Yes that certainly sounds like our spider ForestDragon.

Thank you so much for your suggestion. And I agree they are stunning! Thanks for sharing your spotting :D.

We have similar spiders (same Genus) here in the US as well. We call them Orchard Orbweavers. I think they are just stunning!
Here is mine from New York: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/125...
