Thanks for your help Louis XIV. pediwear.co.uk can ship the Loakes that I want with shoe trees and tan shoe polish for about $290 AUD which is under my original budget. I've pretty much settled on the Loake Beafords. Now I just need to find myself a nice set of stone chinos to go with them! 
Just heard back from Meermin. I can get 10164 model shipped to Australia for about $310 AUD which is about $30 more than the Loakes. So far it's a toss up between these two: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&colset=1&styleid=1512&shoeid=5488&brandid=7&catid=20&oldcolid=2872&stype=0&colourid=2873 http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1967 I am more partial to the brogue pattern of the Loakes due to them having wingtips.
