John,

I would send just your own callsign in the usual way and supplement that 
with a periodic beacon to satisfy the ACMA, not that there's much chance 
of you being monitored by them. Anyone watching aprs will clearly see 
where you are transmitting from. FYI the Oz aprs frequency is 145.175MHz.

I think beer drinkers the world over have pretty much standarised on 
style. You'll get the hang of it real quick, hi.

Cheers,

in Kempsey, a long way (1000km) north-east of Melbourne.
