A lot of the listed bikes up above were only stickered in Oz, but actually made in Taiwan or Japan.

As far as the Aussie old school manufacturers I reckon:

Black Hawk

Crisp

Competition Developments (Quicksilver)

Fatrax

Madison

Malvern Star

Redline

SuperLA

Suparoo

Vortex

Even some of these brands had some of their range made overseas too.

Graecross were Aussie made in their early days, welded up in their Bayswater factory in melbourne. The team frames were made out of tange tubing. I think later (mid-80s onwards) they came out of Asia.
