The following is a list of dealers in the state of Victoria. Owing to the strange Australian custom of not mentioning the city but only the suburb in a postal address, it's not clear which of these are in the Melbourne area, but I would expect most of them to be. Easy enough to phone them and find out, I guess.

All those Ray has listed are in Melbourne.

You may need to tell folks you need a 6BL8 rather than an ECF80.

Same thing but best known by the 6BL8 number in Oz. Should be easy to find. I know I have 30 or 40 on my shelf at home - but I'm not in Melbourne.
