These were taken over a period of 4 days which is why there are so many. I didn’t take one from the bottom though as I didn’t really want to disturb them.

It does also look like Geastrum velutinum, but my concern with labeling it as such was that I thought that this was only found in North America, whereas Geastrum fimbriatum is supposed to be fairly common in Australia, so I went the conservative route.

Lots of images!

You still need one more shot,from the bottom.
This looks like Geastrum velutinum.
