The first annual Australian Internet Awards site is a gateway to the best from down under. Check out the finalists in a wide variety of categories.

Travel Australia


The Australian Tourist Commission home page is fun to visit, even if you aren't planning a trip there.

The photo gallery is filled with stunning images of the country, its people and, of course, its animals. A guide to events has something for every interest. And there's a glossary of terms so words like "fair dinkum" (meaning more or less "that's the truth") won't cause confusion.

The site also offers a chance to win a trip to Australia after users fill out a survey.



Here's Fisher West's Personal WebPage. West describes himself as a web site developer, graphic artist, advertising copywriter and part-time painter.

His site is full of his work, including hand-painted and digital images. Plus, he has several backgrounds downloadable for personal use.

For the kids


Youngsters will love Alex's Scribbles -- Koala trouble.

The pictures and ideas come from 5-year-old Alexander Balson. Dad Scott helps with the interactive stories.

Follow the adventures of Max the koala -- help him find his mummy or race with his friend Platty the platypus, or host Max on his World Trip.

The winners of the Australian Internet Awards will be named September 24 at an event that will be broadcast live on the Internet.
