I am not sure. I have bought stuff off them before. Maybe an old time Barber if there are any still around.

These guys offer a professional service including full restorations. They operate out of QLD.

This is the only commercial honer I know of in Aus right now. There might be others, but this one came recommended by the dude who honed my first razor.

It's not even a week lol. As for Razor honing, Dion Curnow of DC Blades does a great job, as does Irish Bower in Tasmania, of Forgotten Art he doesn't have a website and does the work as a side hobby, however, I have 4 razors with his edges on them and will be sending him another 2 in the next month or so. Prices vary but it was around $40 + post.
