AustralianInFront is a site worth looking at for the heads up on new design in Australia
"Australian INfront is a collaborative project space and launch pad to Australia's best online designers, artists, companies and other design related web sites. INfront is also a growing community of like minded individuals who meet up face to face at INfront gatherings to inspire and motivate each other, lean on each other at times, bend the rules and help; when there's a need for a freelancer, a brainstorm, an opinion or some constructive criticism."
Some very good interviews here.
