I'm not aware of what other areas are doing. Incidently , do you have much trouble getting a decent consistent range?

I know of two organic retailers, one in Sydney and one in Geelong, Vic.
The Sydney organic retailer is called Alfalfa House. I don't know whether all their products are organic, I suspect most are. They have a Web site.
The Geelong organic retailer is called Wholefoods Co-op. Ltd. About 85% of their stock is organic.

The Blue Mountains Food Co-Op started out very similarly to Alfalfa house about 20 years ago, and is still operating, on a commercially viable level. It stocks organic fruit and vegetables, organic dairy, soy etc products, bulk miso, honey, rice malt etc plus drygoods including sugar flours legumes pulses etc. (Also 'natural' soaps deodorant etc) There is often choice between organic and non, though. I don't know if they originaly started as wholly organic
There is also a biodynamic farm in Dural, Sydney called Warrah. There is a small farm shop there that also stocks vegetables from the sydney organic wholesalers as well as other organic products.
