Living Under Australian Censorship

How do I oppose and deal with censorship in Australia? The Australian government has just announced it'll fine people $100,000 if they import Mortal Kombat. I'm not asking how to import it, but what if I want to import something else on the banned list? What do I do if the government decides something I say is illegal? And what organizations can I join to defend free speech in Australia?

Help me find a good river near Melbourne...

Does anyone know any sections of rivers or creeks not too far out of Melbourne (Australia) that are very wide yet quite shallow? You know the type, like something you see in a documentary about Alaskan bears with pebbles on the bottom and crystal clear water. After swimming in an amazing river in West Virginia may years ago I've dreamed about finding a similar one over here.

Trying to find the Green Machine

In the late 1970s the Australian Army made a recruiting film called "The Green Machine". I remember it having some fairly spectacular flying footage by the Army Aviation Corps as well as the usual other stuff. For reasons I'd probably not want to examine too closely I'd like to see it again. Does anyone know of an on-line source? It's not on Youtube as far as I can tell.

Australians of Metafilter, I want to hear from you! I've long heard that turning your glass upside down in a bar in Australia is the same as saying you think you could take anyone in the place.

Mashed yams and Tim Tams?

"American Thanksgiving" in Melbourne, Australia -- for a few Americans and a bunch of new Aussie friends who have never celebrated, but want to help with the cooking. How should I use the next few days to prepare? A few of the difficulties: I've never hosted Thanksgiving before, in ANY country. I'm not sure how to best coordinate the pot-luck aspect -- trying to shape a decent team-effort menu would be wise. I'm not even sure where the best place is to buy a turkey. Bonus points for menu suggestions that add Aussie flair to the American holiday (let's put kangaroo in SOMETHING), or that go over-the-top American (who says we can't have turkey AND bacon cheeseburgers?).
