Spider ID Australia

I assume both are Huntsman spiders, but is it possible to say anything about species?

The first one was found in Daintree National Park, Queensland, in August, while the second one was found in Broome, Western Australia in September.

I wonder if the first is Neosparassus diana.

Maybe a Heteropoda species for the other
