DrSmurto's Golden Ale is often suggested as a very good start for a new AG brewer.
However, your request for a standard lager complicates things a bit more (since many use adjuncts) BribieG has a fairly-easy Aussie Lager recipe somewhere, you might like to try that (I just don't know how to search the recipe DB for it).

Pretty sure in Nicks stovetop tutorial he references Carlton in his recipe.

lagers arent really easy to make - you will need temp control, 4 weeks for your ferment stages and then likely some conditioning time. Any faults in the beer will stand out like dogs balls. Do you like any beer that is an ale as it will be much more forgiving?

What about a Klsch-style ale? Cool-fermented at under 18C, at room temp.

100% pils malt and German hops. Here's a variant from Tony

Maybe you need to leave your Carlton-based comfort zone and embrace other beer. It won't hurt you. G'wan!

Same. :D

Some Barrett Burston malt and some PoR at 60 minutes and you have a beer that tastes pretty much like all Aussie Lagers mainly because all Aussie Lagers are pretty much the same beer.

Use a dry lager yeast - and if you can't keep the temp below 14C ... use US05 at < 18C.
