Top 50 Sites in Australia ?

We were talking at lunch about the top sites, by traffic in Australia.

IMHO there really isn't a good place to get this information

There is a list by Alexa and these are the top 50

  1. Google Australia
  2. Google
  3. Yahoo!
  4. Microsoft Network (MSN)
  6. Myspace
  7. Ninemsn
  8. Windows Live
  9. YouTube
  10. Wikipedia
  12. Real Estate Australia
  13. The Sydney Morning Herald
  15. EBay
  16. Microsoft Corporation
  18. The Age
  19. SEEK
  20. The Internet Movie Database
  21. Australian Bureau of Meteorology
  22. Australian Broadcasting Corporation
  23. Flickr
  24. BBC Newsline Ticker
  26. Digg
  27. Digital Point Solutions
  28. Optus Internet
  29. Telstra Big Pond
  30. ANZ - Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited
  31. RSVP
  32. Whirlpool Broadband News
  34. White Pages Online - Australia
  36. Commonwealth Bank of Australia
  37. Yellow Pages OnLine
  38. AWeber Systems
  40. Whereis
  41. Emailcash
  42. Apple Computer, Inc.
  43. NSW Government
  44. SourceForge
  45. SitePoint
  47. National Australia Bank
  48. Westpac Banking Corporation
  49. About

Some of these sites aren't surprising, some I have never heard of before.

I could go to Hitwise but they charge for their information.

Where can I find the definitive list of top sites?

    Frank, perhaps we should start a petition to get "what 50 websites to you visit most frequently" added to the next Australian Census?

    I can tell you the Alexa results are quite different to some of the paid services.  There are a lot more people looking for nudity and so forth than the NSW Govt 🙂

    Alexa is only available to those using the toolbar (which is Windows and IE only). This slants things quite significantly IMHO — and also you have to question why or who installs a toolbar which sends your browsing history to a 3rd party.

    Based on my knowledge of some of the sites on the list, it actually looks more or less accurate.
