Australian Bookmakers Official Guide


Welcome to the Australian Bookmakers Sports Betting Guide.

Australians have always loved a bet, we will pretty well have a bet on anything! In the past Aussie punters usually bet at their local TAB or  for racing punters on the racecourse with an on-course bookmaker.

So much has changed now that pretty well every Aussie is connected to the Internet via computers and mobiles. Australian bookmakers now take most of their bets online or via smartphone apps.

The Australian sports betting market is highly competitive with bookmakers all seeking a share of the online sports betting market.

To be competitive they need to attract punters by offering the best value betting as well as ensuring that punters can deposit money easily, bet with ease and with all the convenience that this technological age demands.

They also offer regular betting specials, Money Back offers, Free Bets and many more incentives to ensure they get you as a betting customer.

The range of horse racing betting and sports betting markets are bigger than they have ever been, meaning that Australians can now place bets on virtually every sporting event taking place anywhere in the world 24/7. You can also bet on politics, celebrities’ babies names, TV show outcomes, the weather and even more with just your desktop computer, tablet or mobile phone.

Live-In-Play sports betting (betting on various outcomes when a sports event has started) is also available with Australian bookmakers by telephone only due to Australian legislation or with Overseas bookmakers online.

At we provide reviews of Australian Bookmakers as well as selected Overseas Bookmakers that welcome Aussie sports betting customers.
