Oh yes, the first massive one we saw was up a tree (about 6m up), in the CBD. Big bluey silver body with spindly legs - put me off walking under trees for ages!
When we first moved in to the house, we found a redback in the shed......soon Merteined that though! (DH sent me in to deal with it and I thought I was more scared!!). Not seen one since, thankfully.
Then, last Sunday night when I was putting the bins out, I saw what I think was was 'baby' huntsamn (grey hairy one) on the front porch...think I'll be putting the bins out in daylight next time and I plan on spraying the house external orifices today if the wind dies down. The worst bit is knowing that if there's a baby one, there's probably a mum and dad one somewhere, too!
Urgh, getting the shudders just thinking about it
