Moved from Spiders. I hope you don't mind, I cropped your image so we can see the details more easily. Don't worry, this isn't a dangerous spider.

Moved from ID Request.

I'm going to take a couple of guesses and either say it's a male Hacklemesh Weaver or a male Funnel Web Weaver. Males are common wanderers in any spider species, and are always on the search for females. It can be safely released outside in a wood pile or other sheltered environment.

I'm sure someone can help out more.
