    That's a great catch Rhythm as was GPU & wifi.

    Looks like the alternate spelling jujitsu is a little more popular in Aus but nevetheless it's a great domain for reg fee.

    Oh and this thread is all about recent reg's so keep them coming!

    investment property calculator.com.au

    Want to use this domain to sell excel property calculator and to provide a free version. I think this domain is good for SEO purpose.

    I'll be heading there in april to take photos and enjoy the area... might as well make it a tax deduction.

    I think the idea is a good one... go to Melbourne, take lots of photos and it's tax deductable (assuming you'll make a site out of it).

    If some of my big projects come through (and i'll get some $$$), we'll be heading to FrenchPolynesia in Tahiti ... in order to get the content (photos / videos) for DiscoverFrenchPolynesia.com

    HydroEnergy.com.au

    Registered HydroEnergy.com.au ... as i'm currently doing some projects in the energy space.

    Probably will be worth something eventually in the 5-10 year region.

    Can't wait till the new domain pricing comes into effect... so i can shave $6 of the reg fee

    That's a nice one.

    We have HydroElectricPower.com.au amongst other green energy domains. I think these sorts of domains will do well into the future

    I agree.

    I just wish i could have registered carbontrading.com.au or carbonmarket.com.au

    Those would be worth a fortune now... oh well.

    OK, so I've basically been getting generic .net.au's that I'm surprised are still available since all .com.au's are pretty much taken.

    Keywords are for the most part usually for niche industries I'm familiar with (that have a reasonably healthy google search numbers) and that I know I can develop site content for.

    Now I'm looking into hosting and site content options. Though it's easier said than done.

    Some great domains Rhythm - well done.

    I think a lot of people (me included) have overlooked net.au's to some extent. If you look at the actual sales, a very healthy proportion of them have been net.au. I think that this shows that end-users don't discriminate as harshly as perhaps we do.
