    Looks like a St Andrew's Cross Spider.

    Found one in our garden a few years back. The legs were much closer to one another and it seemed that they have four legs, so I had to google 4 legged spider and came across it's proper name.

    I don't think it is a Golden Orb.
    We used to call them "Tuin-spinnekoppe"

    Argiope australis; Garden Orb-web Spider

    The paired legs and abdomen shape make them unique.
    They also spin a zig-zag line on the web (I don't know why, though).

    We fed them whatever insects we could catch.

    Coincidentally had a Bush walk on Sunday, and the field guide pointed one out to us. Yes, it's a Garden Orb Spider. They do sometimes have a golden thread in their webs. The zig zag line is for tightening the whole web.

    I might have mistaken it for a St Andrews Cross Spider, which I see belongs to the same Argiope family (Argiope keyserlingi).

    I am no spider expert, just learning as I go along.
