What Type Of Spider Is This?

It seems very big, and solid, and slightly scary.

Sitting on an outside table in Waitārere Beach on the North Island of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Anyone, what is it?

(yes I've tried Google Lens and it helpfully told me it was a spider. With a bit of prodding Lens then said maybe a Wolf Spider or perhaps a Jumping Spider, I don't think it's those, or is it?)
