I'm interested in what you find out here, how much to pay? what they expect? I thought that Australia was a country that didn't 'do' au pairs like they do in europe... keep us updated on what happens?

I am also interested in this. We are considering having an au pair if my hubby changes jobs.

I have been looking on this site - might be of use to you:

Hi, I'm in the UK and I've had aupairs for 5 and 1/2years now and it has worked out well for my family. However other people will tell you horror stories. Two of our aupairs each stayed with us for two years & only left for visa reasons and the other for one year. I've had two Slovakian, one Turkish and a Hungarian aupair. We stayed with our Turkish aupair's family last year and our Slovakian aupairs are close family friends.

My advice is to make it very clear to your aupair what you expect. They like to see a 'program' - basically what times they work and what they have to do.

Here's a website I have used before. Good Luck.
