    Dunn and farrugia are the big name but pricey.
    Check the local papers for better deals

    I had a good experience with Scott from Jims Fenciing Emu Plains :)
    Good price, good service.

    Have a look at salvage yards and the tip shops, they are packed with them. I had one made a few years ago from a cast iron bed head and end, turned one upside down and a metal fabricator weld them, the handyman installed it, I love it, mind you, that's a front gate, the driveway gates are ancient from the old house over the road.

    If you are a bit of a handyman, you can get all the bits you require from Bunnings - premade gate frames made of gal steel, with hinges, instructions and can be trimmed to size (need an angle grinder), etc.

    I made one for the side of our last PPoR - took a day to do...rapid-set concrete in the posts, then measure and cut the frame, assemble that, attach hinges to posts, cut and attach wooden slats (need a drill for this part), hang gate and stain slats.

    Not a good photo, but you can see it down the right side of the house.

    (Incidentally; that letter box took almost a day to do as well! :eek:)

    Already got a quote fron dunn and farrugia they were expensive.
    Im after a aluminion gate with horizontal slatting. Im pretty handy however the side of the house is not level so the gate needs to be tapered if thats the correct word.

    Thats a freaking awesome letter box dude. Lol
