No sure what you need but reasonable suppliers that I've used at various times are below.

Prices and delivery times and costs vary. check them all.

RS Australia (https://au.rs-online.com/web/)
Element 14 (http://au.element14.com/)
Altronics (http://www.altronics.com.au/)
Jaycar (https://www.jaycar.com.au/)  -- although not really much left in terms of useful components

Also, if you are purchasing a reasonable amount, buying from the US is about as fast (sometimes faster) than the locals.. Both DigiKey and Mouser have free shipping over a certain amount.. from memory its about AU$60. I use DigiKey a lot and normally receive delivery in 3-4 working days. Most of the Australian companies can't even do that..

DigiKey (https://www.digikey.com.au/)
Mouser (https://au.mouser.com/)

I'm sure there are others..

Ash.

Plus of course there is https://www.aliexpress.com/ for very cheap parts in bulk from China, usually with free shipping. The downside being that they take 3 to 4 weeks to arrive. And may turn out to be rubbish, or not turn up at all. Though in my experience 99% of orders work out well.

I've used WES Components a few times (https://www.wes.com.au/) at the old location in Ashfield (NSW). For cables I've used:
https://www.4cabling.com.au/

But initially I try Element14, RS Components, Digi-key, and Mouser, especially when the parts must meet a certain engineering spec.
For Japanese components that you can't find elsewhere, try Chip1Stop:  http://www.chip1stop.com/web/LKA/en/

Just an update. i purchased few Resistor and Cap from www.x-on.com.au and it turns out to be delivered today. Amazed with the fast delivery. THough delivery price was high as i paid 15$ freight for 10$ item, but i think its worth the amount i will spend from other companies.

www.rockby.com.au

Despite a crappy search engine, they have some terrific specials from time to time. And many of their parts are cheaper than anywhere else (including overseas) because they buy excess stock. They also stock some rare parts and parts that are old hat, like pin-through-hole components, as well as SMD devices. Rockby and and Altronics are only real electronic stores in Melbourne for project stuff.

Jaycar has become what Dick Smith became - an embarrassment. Jaycar has no ethics. They ripped off the Arduino Experimenters Kit invented by Freetronics. I have never set foot into a Jaycar store since.

Xon are fine to deal with. They are often much cheaper than RS / Farnell.
