I LOVE my hard-seat Aussie saddle. The seat isn't what I'd call exactly "hard" (at least not like a hard seat western is), but it's not padded like most Aussie saddles I've seen or tried.
On the other hand, my friend's Circle Y saddle with about 4" of padding on the seat (okay, I exaggerate...there's only about 2" of padding...seriously) leaves bruises on my butt bones. But then again, so has ANY western saddle I've ever ridden, whether it's hard or padded.
