    starnow.com has auditions but you have to pay money to actually get all the information from them and it's not cheap. Also had a look at the first site suggested and it's not up to date.

    there are two that is worth noticing that will help you get ahead, i beieve here on casting call pro will help the actor getting roles. www.starnow.com.au most are students but it is good experience to learn the ropes. showcast are for showreels and help get notiice more. in hindsiht of it all. casting call pro is a tad more professiona.

    There is some good info here

    helpmeimanactor.com.au/317/at2-showcast-ecaster-the-list-goes-on

    but below are my experiences:

    casting networks australia au.castingnetworks.com I am on this site. It is still free. Unlike the person on the website above I haven't found any work through this site but that probably depends on whether your agent uses it or not. Mine doesn't. He uses ecaster

    ecaster www.ecaster.com.au Mainly used by agents to submit your profile to clients. I have gotten a few jobs through here through my agent but they only occasionally list jobs. Costs about $30 per month from memory but has easily paid for itself.

    Star now www.starnow.com.au If you are just starting out star now is excellent. Mainly unpaid student films (good for experience) but also

    has paid feature film actor and extra work occasionally. Free profile but costs about $70 per year if you want to apply for jobs. Well worth it in my opinion. I got my first feature film role through here.

    AT2 app.at2casting.com/au/join/Login.aspx They have a free package that allows you to put up a profile but for any further enhancement it will

    cost you betwen $69 - $319 per year depending on the package. It seems to be popular for serious actors but I couldn't see any jobs advertised.

    Perhaps I needed to pay more or have my agent use it.

    Showcast www.showcast.com.au/ seems to have all the top actors on it but again I couldn't see any listing of jobs but maybe their agents use it. No free basic startup with this one.

    Costs between $52-$125 per year which is probably reasonable if it truly is the no 1 site in Australia.

    Castings and auditions castingsandauditions.com.au/ Pretty good site and does have a jobs section. Basic free profile and then upgrades between $88 - $198.

    Dare 2 audition www.d2a.net.au OK site with job section but only had two jobs on there last time I checked. Like many of the other sites the basic profile is free but if you want to audition/apply for jobs you need to upgrade at a cost of $130 per year.

    Quiet on set - www.quietonset.com.au Say they list 700 jobs (paid and unpaid) per year but you have to subscribe to see them ($90 per year). Don't know enough to recommend them or now. You can join their mailing list for free

    Casting calls pro (australia) - this site. Doesn't seem to have much in the way of jobs but that may grow in time.

    Upgrade costs 10 pounds per month ($18) per month? (though it is not clear)

    Interesting response...Seriously???? You need to chill!!! All you had to say was that star now has a half-yearly option of $35. I gave yearly figures to keep things simple. But thanks for bringing it up.

    Many of these sites have monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and yearly subscription options. The price I quoted for ecaster was actually for myself and my daughter. It is $15 for an individual per month.

    Hope that helps
