DS' room gets all the afternoon sun (in Perth). I ended up buying car window shades, cutting and then tapping them into the window to keep it cool. Has dropped the room temp approx 2-3 degrees

He also has vertical blinds and in the last few days we now have block out curtains (waited 2 months to be made, hence the car shades in the window)

Those who have portable air cons - how do u find them? Do u put water / ice in them?

You buy them from Harvey Norman or the good guys. They are refrigerated so no need for water or I've they work just like a normal wall air conditioner

Do the portable a/c make a lot of noise?
I like the car shades idea. He has block out curtains in his room.

Our house is a relatively small 3 bedder, so the air conditioner in the living area flows up the hall into DS's room. It doesn't make his room really cool, but it does help if we leave his door open while we're running the A/C.
We have blockout curtains in his room and he has a fan on him for a bit when he first goes to bed.
I'm in NSW and we've been really fortunate not to cop some of the insanely hot days the other states have been subjected to this summer.

I shut all the doors and just open her bedroom to cool with the aircon for a good 30 mins before bed. She also has a fan in there and we have used things to block out the sunlight (more cause she can't sleep with lots of light)

Our portable air con doesn nothing in our bedroom. Its at the opposite end of the house to the air con in the family room, once its over 40 degrees the split system only really cools that room Sucks. 13th day over 40 this summer in SA today
