This is a polypore. The fruit body grows from dead wood, has a leathery consistency and consists of a cap on a stem. The cap may grow to several centimetres in diameter. It's upper surface is some shade of brown and there is a central depression. On the underside of the cap there are radially-elongated, roughly hexagonal pores (shown here: http://www.cpbr.gov.au/fungi/images-captions/polyporus-artcularius-0127.html). The stem is central, of much the same colour as the cap surface and from one to a few centimetres in length.
