Although all banks are free to set their own mortgage rates in Australia, the majority do seem to set them at very similar levels.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) also issue a monthly spreadsheet detailing the changes in what they call the “F05 Indicator Lending Rates”.

One of these rates is the Banks Variable Standard Housing Loan rates.

A graph of these rates, from 1969 to 2009, using a 3 monthly average, is shown here:
