Lessons from another flier will definitely speed up your learning curve by a lot and reduce initial frustration (if any). Once you get the hang of things, then by all means fly by yourself as much as you want. I get it. Sometimes I just want to ignore the rest of the world and fly a kite.
There should be a few members on this forum from Australia. One is already on this thread. The ones I can think of are on the west coast, but maybe they know someone or can help you find someone near you to get you started on the right foot.
