We would like to share with you two blogs that are so very helpful with Australian Curriculum.
York District High School is a Teacher Development School for AC:History. They have a fantastic blog to assist teachers with planning with AC:H.  Please visit their blog 
Dalkeith Primary School has a wonderful blog that assists teachers with all things "techno". This is particularly useful for the AC:E content descriptions from the Print and Screen thread in the sub strands of Text Structure and Organisation and Creating Texts.  Please visit their blog
