How can I create poutine
... in Australia? What the heck are these "cheese curds" anyway?

I want to try poutine! Unfortunately the closest I've been to Canada in the past ten years was the Canadian Pavilion at Epcot Center. (We actually asked one of the Canuck workers there where we could get it, but she shamefully confessed they didn't serve it. GET ON THAT, DISNEY!) It looks simple enough to make, except for one thing: cheese curds. What the heck are those, and where do I get them in Australia? Do I have to make my own?
(For other confused non-Canadians, the cheese involved definitely doesn't look like cottage cheese; the picture on the page I linked has much bigger and drier-looking curds. I've never seen anything like that in Sydney.)
Also, I'll take any good tips/recipes you've got for the gravy...
