I have opened an account with E*trade Australia recently. So far they compare very well with my account in Belgium, where I pay about the same per trade, but get no information whatsoever. In comparison with Suretrade, my broker in the USA, I like the customizable home page very much at E*trade, as well as the market-depth feature. Charts, company news and financials are also free, which is important in Australia, as they're hard to come by, compared to USA. I would still like to find mor info on Australian companies, does anyone know a functioning message board like this one? What is the best financial site?

Costs at Suretrade are 8 or 10 USD, 10 being for limit orders. It was easy to open an account as an "alien".

The main reason for me to go to Australia as well is the more convenient market hours: I live in NZ. No online brokers here.
