I have to agree with finding all kind of things around the world and I am for sure no expert about mushrooms. I will keep you ID till I find something else. Thank you very much.

OK, I withdraw my suggestion.
But this is a Hygrocybe sp., all the hints point to it: the stem, the size, gills, color etc.
I saw that the mushroom is in Australia, but nowdays the mushrooms (spores) found ways to travel. I say this because I found myself a Clathrus Archeri in Romania, and Romania is not only on the other side of the earth from Australia/New Zealand, where the Devil's Fingers is from, but also on a different hemisphere, so it's not that impossible that this mushroom is Hygrocybe Punicea.

CorduneanuVlad.. Not so sure about this ID?!?! This is not a large fungi and I am in Australia and a very warm area?

@ CorduneanuVlad I have just uploaded a 2. photo. Could you please have another look. Thanks .. :)

Hygrocybe Conica maybe.
I say maybe because I can't see the whole mushroom, from above. I guess it has a red cap...
