When looking for completely free search services in Australia be aware that sites appearing at the top of search are likely paid sites.
Here's an example: Search for Free Australia People Search. In our corner of the world the first listing is an ad paid for offering Phone, Social Media & Photos and Public Accounts by phone lookup, address look up. Entering a name and pressing the search button leads to page asking if the search is for 'myself' or 'someone else'.
Search engines in and for Australia started the practice of denoting paid listings a few years ago but the little message footnoting the listings falls short of warning people that search engines for Australia haven't used or evaluated the search facilities much less determined them to be worthy of top placement in SERPs (Search-Engine Return Pages). On the contrary, most search services use mathematics (not people) to evaluate websites and pages to determine which sites should be first, second, etc. so the determining factors of placing a site high in the search is based upon things like people linking to the site, the 'quality' of those websites, the peoples' authority on the subject in question, the amount of words on the webpage.
Clicking on the question offered by one search service ("What is the best search engine to find a person?") leads to a site that offers limited 'free' information and requires payment so here again search can be ambiguous as to cost. When searching for sources of free info about people, paid sites are still returned in searches.
Rather than attempt to filter out all the noise in search returns (when looking for information about people in Australia) it's simple these days to just enter the person's name in the Google search box and press enter. If there are too many people, enter more information about the person, if known, like middle initial, known and previous addresses, school attended, relatives, spouse(s), date of birth, military service and so on. A search for 'Sue Smith' in the Australia would likely produce a ton of listings where looking for 'Susan B. Smith' would narrow the results and 'Susan Beth Smith' would return very few matches (if any).
