Australian / New Zealand Dialogue

When: The mid-1930s / Present-day time

Where: Australia and New Zealand

Previous Research: 'Australian Speech', 'Australian Translation'

Hey there; I'm writing a story revolving around an Australian and a New Zealander. Are there any websites out there that will help me in getting their manners of speech as accurate as possible? For example, I know that the British use the term 'sweets' over 'candy' and the like. Is there any place I can go that could give me the same kind of guide for Australians, as a writer who isn't familiar with the way a local might speak? I've come across a few dictionaries and slang translations, but nothing to really help with what I'm looking for.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
