This is listed as Hydnellum auratile on the FNCV Fungi Group lists and appears under this name in Fuhrer, A Field Guide to Australian Fungi. Second image shows detail of the tan coloured spines.
The similar looking Phelledon niger is a darker charcoal or black on the cap and has grey spines.
This species is sometimes illustrated in Australia as H. fuscum, The red brick coloured balls are the sexual reproductive stage and the hairy looking star-like clusters nearby are the asexual anamorph stage. See second image for detail on the anamorph.

Caps of this bright orange mushroom were no more than 10 mm with a deep central depression. Younger fruiting bodies were almost hemispherical, flattening out as the mature. Caps showed some striation and margins were wavy.
Stipe was smooth and slightly paler than the cap. Could not get a shot of the gills. Possibly Rickenella fibula.
