Mate - I'm planning too and hopefully with my wife (and no kids). I have always enjoyed Australian movies - we both enjoyed Red Dog and too a lesser extent Tomorrow when the War began in the last few years, as well as many others.

Even if these movies are not great it helps promote Australian Stories rather than the whole only US is great and the dilution of our culture into another. Happy for it to change, as it will, but don't want Hollywood driving it.

Watched the shorts and it looks real good - the areas he was a "bushranger" in was where my Uncle had a farm until recent years - Canowindra. It is a lovely part of NSW that I enjoyed when I was younger.
