Hi BJ2701,
I'm pretty sure that if you have a major credit card, you could probably order fins from True Ames, Wolfgang Lessacher, Gorge Fin Co., Tangent Dynamics, etc. and they would be able to send the fin right to your door.
Yes, the shipping could be a little steep, but not having fun, because you are "dragging the fin" or become afraid to "let it all hang out" for fear of the big crash when you go aground, could be even more "costly".
If you need the links, we can provide them. Some of these companies may have some sort of distribution set up in Australia.
Or, if you know anyone who does business trips to the US or Europe,
order the fin and have them pick it up on their next trip.
Hope this helps,

Great to see you on here Wolfgang! I am hoping to pester Roger to try some of your fins he has while at Windfest. ;-)
