In brief: Spider bite

Sounds like a spider bite.
I am not sure what types of spiders are common or poisonous in Australlia. If poisonous spiders are common around your town, I would visit the doctor. If you experience severe pain, abdominal cramping, or the bite site begins to open up like a wound, immediately go to the hospital.
