Ok, this sounds more like something suitable for org.au, rather than com.au .
I don't know about you, but australianexpatriots.com.au sounds like a
company which we expatriots (and yes, I am one living in Amsterdam..)
can order vegemit and timtams from!

So my answer to this is to apply for either .org.au or .asn.au .

Personally, I don't see why .com.au even entered into this domain name.
.com is meant to be "company", right ?
