Conversion Charts

I found these conversion charts that show the Australian Standard for cooking, which might make it easier for people with any conversion queries.  As I am an Australian, I generally use the Australian standard in my measurements.  All credit for this goes to the team at taste.com.au

If using a fan-forced oven, your cooking time may be a little quicker, so start checking your food a little earlier
