Hi Rob

You might like to start with http://toysdownunder.com. Pricing is pretty 
good and service for me to date has been excellent although freight 
costs are a little high as they are based in WA. There's also 
http://www.RobotGear.com.au. Havn't tried them yet but pricing is fairly 
competitive also. Ther have been a few Arduino products on Ebay but 
there would of course be little or no support.

Let us know how you go
