Some of the Australian Index Funds are from Commonwealth Bank who has an All Ords fund that can be traded on the ASX, Vanguard also has an Australian Fund based on the All Ords.

Of the overseas funds, Vanguard does not have a specific US index fund (although i wish they did !!).
It has the MSCI global fund. Good luck.


I'll let you work it out, since i don't have the time to do so.
