Simple Question here guys. Is there a seal or gasket that runs between the Master Cylinder and booster that I can replace to fix this or am I up for a brand new Master Cylinder and/or Booster? Please see image below:

Thanks for that. Unfortunetely Master Cylinders aint too cheap. Repco quoted me $242 for a new one.

My brake pedal is currently quite stiff, doesn't have much travel and is no-where near as sensitive as other cars I have driven (my mates EF for example). I have tested the booster by holding my foot on the brake and starting the car and it doesn't continue to drop to the ground so I do not think there is a problem there. Is there pressure being lost by the leaking seals that would be causing this?
