Doesn’t look like Gloeophyllum to me either, more like Daedaleopsis, Lenzites or Trametes. There’s a handful of Lenzites-species listed for Australia, but I can’t find any pictures to compare with..

what it was growing on but it probably was Melaleuca or Ficus

I doubt that is a Gloeophyllum

This reminds me of Gloeophyllum sepiarium was it on pine?
