  3. Schools in Australia - Unfortunately I don't know of any although I'm sure there are.

    Schools Posting has some schools here in the U.S. and online.

    Hopefully someone else might be able to respond.
    You might check with some of VFX companies there and see if there are any recommendations or if they have interns, etc from nearby schools.
