A good place to start your search or keep an eye on and at least see what the best prices are/have been.
I buy imports usually brands like msi or asus that have a local warranty and register the device on their website. A lot of people recommend evga for their warranty but I've never bought any. Amazon, newegg and B&H photo are places I've used, just make sure you keep it under the $1000aud import limit. I'm using the MSI gaming x and can recommend it as a very quiet card.

EBay just had 20% off tech from a couple of sellers (not the 18%) they do it quite regularly, futu_online, pcbyte are some of the sellers that are usually part of the sale.
Look here https://www.newegg.com/global/au/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=-1&IsNodeId=1&Description=gtx%201080ti&page=1&bop=And&PageSize=36&order=PRICE around $950 + plus postage to au is about $40.

Got one of these today
http://www.msy.com.au/qld/morningside/nvidia/18806-n-msi-gtx-1080-ti-sea-hawk-x-11g-gtx-1080-ti-sea-hawk-x-corsair-water-cooling-pci-e-vga-card.html

My 3dmark demo benchmark went from 4445 with the 980 to 8500, which put my pc in the top 96% of similar tested pc,  but I am think of returning it already as I have since learnt its just a founders board and has a slight coil whine.  Battlefield1 looked amazing on max settings and was around 130- 150 fps at 5760x1920 , get about 50 - 60 atm

Does anyone know if its a decent card or not as I cannot find any reviews or benchmarks or anything on it much and is that score is ok for a 1080ti and the coil noise is a bit annoying.

The guy in the shop said he would only have msi also, and he claimed this one was one of the few that he had not had back yet due to problems.
I have taken it out atm because the shop said they will take it back if I like,  it ran nice and cool didn't get above 50degree in games or benchmarks,  I just don't want to have it if there is another that is better :)

Reference boards are fine, particularly water cooled ones, although personally I steer clear of all in one liquid coolers even for CPU's. Coil whine seems to be a "luck of the draw" thing and can happen to ANY card/make or model. Most people people return their coil whine cards within a few days if it doesn't go away after stress test/ run in. I've never used that benchmark but unigine superposition is free to download, results in pic.

I was just about to ask you about that. My friend is looking to start sim racing and needs to buy everything including a PC so was gonna ask how much you wanted for your old card  ;D

EDIT: While talking about you selling stuff did you decide if you wanted to sell your V3s???  :o

You can still return it. I have an old corsair liquid cpu cooler which has air in it (evaporation) and doesn't do the job well any more, it's normal for these things. Plus you can't really top them up. I went with a full custom loop with my pc when I had a 980ti but went air cooled on the 1080ti and kept the custom loop attached to the cpu only.
