Rochelle, if there are any particular irises that you really need to import 
(that you are sure are not in Australia already) you should contact Barry 
Blyth, and see if he can assist you.
I think, for many historics, it would be worth advertising widely in 
Australia, through the various state branches of the iris society, to see 
what comes up.
Cheers, Jan
