Yes, Monash mirrors from AARNet.
I used to look after the Linux mirroring when I worked at Monash (I
left last June) - I set it up originally to mirror from the US, but
when mirror.aarnet.edu.au got started I was persuaded to mirror from

I had another look at the mirror list on the weekend and noticed
there's an ftp.wa.au.debian.org that *is* up to date.
On my Telstra ADSL link, I see this :
% netselect -vv mirror.aarnet.edu.au ftp.wa.au.debian.org
mirror.aarnet.edu.au 48 ms 10 hops 50% ok ( 5/10) [ 194]
ftp.wa.au.debian.org 67 ms 17 hops 60% ok ( 3/ 5) [ 299]
Of course, the advantage of mirror.aarnet being broken all last week
means we missed the whole woody/glibc saga :)
