I've always thought these egg sacs were Aranaea pustulosa.
They certainly are one of the orb weavers.
Can any of our clever spider folks confirm or deny this ?

The Manuka is a myrtle tree also commonly known as New Zealand tea-tree. While it looks similar to Kanuka, the Manuka's spiky leaves make it easy to differentiate the two.
