I got a Belkin USB ergonomic keyboard from Hardly Normal in Fyshwick.  $20

Layout much the same as M$, but the "feel" of the keypress is a bit short & 
stiff for my liking.  Might be OK to cart around with a laptop though.

Those who type by "hunt & peck" are likely to hate ergonomic keyboards from 
whatever manufacturer.
