Stocking ideas for a 72 Litre Tank.
I was just wondering if anyone help could me decide what to put in my 72 litre tank as I'm a bit unsure about how much fish it could take

So that's about 20gal in US measurements - is it a long tank or tall tank?
What kind of filter do you have? Stocking ideas will probably hinge upon what kind of fish stores carry locally and what you like. I could recommend some but you would need to find fish you like and then see if you have adequate space.46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, green corys, 1 guppy, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants

Usually the small tetras are a good bet, available in every store. Neons, phantoms, glowlights, etc. You can always do a limited number of guppies and/or platies. If you are new to the hobby, read up on cycling before getting any fish, and stick to "beginner" fish like I mentioned. More experience could see you happy with a dwarf cichlid, cories, etc.
Dimensions do matter, too. Mine's tall, so that kinda stinks for bottom feeders and fish who love to swim fast.20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!
