welcome to the forums mate!
So glad you are here.
Great to hear that you are going to give it a go down under. And just as Slowhike has already indicated...there are several HF members that are located in Australia, and should be able to answer many of your questions, and hopefully steer you in the right directions.
As Tim said...check the google map and then just PM the guys. And you can always just put up a post in the "General Hammock Talk" forum and ask for any needed information...and then just watch them come out of the woodwork. HF is truly international
, when comes it to membership.
