I always liked "Rockclimbing : getting started" by Glenn Tempest, if you can find a secondhand copy as it's out of print. It has a good overall coverage of equipment and techniques; concisely presented. Also relevant to Australia.
"Mountaineering Freedom of the hills" is extensive and regularly updated.
I'm reading Andy Kirkpatricks "Down" which is very detailed book on rappelling. There is a short e-book version from Amazon I think. Haven't looked at his other books like "1001 climbing tips" but he writes and illustrates well.
Also a bunch of articles on here work digging through
