Australian Forum Foks: Regional Accent Question

I have watched two Australian youtubers, OzPonds and Blake's Aquatics and I notice their accents sound similar to each other ( to me, midwestern American) but quite different from the accent of the narrator on Casefile (the true crime podcast). Can anyone tell me how these sound different to Australians--e.g. in the US I can say Danny DeVito and Bobby Cannavale sound like they're from working class New Jersey and the Kardashians sound like they're from suburban LA...

Just curious because I noticed I'm more familiar with the differences between accents in BBC historical dramas than real life modern Australia.

That was helpful, thank you. I guess the Casefile narrator has a “broad” accent and whether or not it’s emphasized for dramatic effect or not, or sounds like a particular city/region will take more refined learning on my part. Gotta watch more Aussie Netflix!
