I used the C-Map vector charts very successfully in All of Australia. Otherwise, the only other charts I'm aware of that are available are for New Zealand. But, C-Map charts will be good there too.

Re: Where do i download charts?

There was a recently updated discussion on here with download links.

I did the downloads and successfully read them with OpenCPN. Note that there seemed to be a lot of duplication but I installed the lot anyway.

I suggest if you want to save space, read the OpenCPN manual about how to interpret CM93 format, and only copy those folders for the area you are interested in. That's my next task.
