Default Watermelon spider

I was trying to figure out the type of spider that looks like a watermelon on
its main body I'll attach a picture.

Looks just a bit like this one
https://www.flickr.com/photos/readerwalker/23880892027 but not exactly.
That pattern of longitudinal stripes and multi colors appears to be pretty
rare from the searching I did.

Where did you see this beastie? Location would certainly help to try to
nail something down. Odds are that if you are in Oz then it will try to
kill and eat you...
