This is a bracket fungi that appears occasionally in this region. It has a white leading edge with the underpart white also and the top areas change during growth from orange/brown to red/brown. This particular bracket fungi does not extrude moisture like some of the others in this area. It is rather soft to touch, fibre in make up,(not woody), and does not survive as long as many of the others. (usually about 2 months.) This area is semi open to sunlight and is dry humid most of the time. (The stump is an old Cedar tree with a girth about 2.5 meters at the base.)

What species of tree do you mean by cedar? I’m not very familiar with the flora of Australia, and that common name gets applied to many different species spanning multiple families of trees.
