    Hello mate, looks like the passion fruit cousin called stinking passion flower. Down Under and elsewhere, I suppose a fitting moniker would be Passiflora foetida. This link contains some common vines of Australia including your mystery. http://www.weeds.org.au/cgi-bin/weedident.cgi?tpl=form.tpl&state=qld&s=0&region=cmc&form=vine
    A really good shot of the fruit is at this link.

    We call it a ‘wild cucumber’ here in eastern Canada, will overtake if not kept back.
