    There are plenty of people who raise monarchs in Victoria and South Australia There is a group on Facebook for Those who raise monarchs in SA and if you don’t use Facebook you might like to ask a friend who does to help you make contact with them He is the link

    I am sure that some of the members from other parts of Australia You might also like to send me an email and I will contact two people, one in Melbourne and one further north, who would be keen to contact you My email address is jacqui@monarch.org.nz

    I hope that helps !

    hiya … hope this link helps. I’ve seen monarchs aka wanderers in
    Queensland and according to the link you could expect to see them in Melbourne. But possibly they move to warmer climes as winter approaches? Maybe ring a garden centre to see if they stock milkweed in the season? I’m not sure if Oz permits the import of seeds, plants and living critters without quarantine and so on.

    good luck!
