Have a look at Saba, pretty much the only Aussie brand I bother looking at any more. They had some really nice, sligtly streaky Japanese denim a couple of years ago, pretty slim (I only had to taper the legs slightly for a great fit). These are getting better and better the more I wear them. I've got another more recent light grey pair, even slimmer, but not quite as nice denim. Not sure what their current range is like, but worth a look.
Don't buy at retail though, they drop a fair bit in the sales. My last pair was down to $50 from $169. Check out eBay as well, my first pair was unwanted gift brand new on eBay for $15!
Unbranded denim online from Inseam Australia for $80 (I think) is another option. But I'm seriously struggling to think of many more! Find somewhere having a sale on Levi's maybe? But even then the range / pricing is bad, and my Saba jeans are way better than any Levi's I've had.
