Hello Claudia,
In France we call it "Polypore" but I don't know its exact ID of this superb colored species. Great contrast of the orange on the dark background. Composition, sharpness and DOF are super.
Congratulations and TFS.

Hi Claudia,
The are two possibility about ID; your photo shows Pycnoporus cinnabarinus (Jacquin 1776) Fries 1881 or Pycnoporus coccineus (Fries 1851) Bondartsev & Singer 1941. It is hard to identify the correct name by photo but, according to my bibliography, in Australia is more common Pycnoporus coccineus.
