Despite being Nintendo's second-fastest selling console in history, you can still find stock at a good price in Australia, if you know where to look.

Given the Nintendo Switch's long and murky release, which consisted of its fair share of shocks and disappointments, it's come as a nice surprise to hear that the console has done incredibly well at launch.

Nintendo Switch review

With such a strong launch, you would expect the Nintendo Switch to be sold out left, right and centre. However, a few online and in-store retailers still have stock available and it's not hard to find a good bundle deal or a discount on accessories, as long as you know where to look.

Here's where you can find the best deals on Nintendo Switch consoles and accessories post-launch.

Nintendo Switch console deals

While you might have trouble finding the neon red and blue Joy-Con variant of the standard Switch console, we've had no trouble finding the vanilla grey version. If you do happen to find the neon red and blue console, pricing should be the same.

Note: Shipping fee estimates are based on Sydney deliveries.

RetailerPriceShippingTotal
The Gamesmen$498.95Free$498.95
Kogan$469.00$8.93$477.93
JB Hi-Fi$469.00$9.95$478.95
EB Games$469.95$8.10$478.05
Big W$519.00 Bundle deal*$9.90$528.90

*Bundle deal includes The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (valued at $75.00 from Big W). That's a $25.95 saving on an already cheap copy of Breath of the Wild.

If all else fails, you can head over to Amazon and pick up a second-hand console from around $571.08, but that's a bit of a hassle considering it's an international seller and you'll probably have to fork out for an AC adaptor.
