Scott - from my post here a few days ago...

Perhaps. If you'd prefer a tunnel to AU rather than all the way to US...

You can get a free IPv6 tunnel from the ARNNET Tunnel Broker 'for non production use'-
considerably better latency for local sites than running to HE -
http://www.aarnet.edu.au/network/network-operations/protocols/ipv6  and 

This is quite good for familiarisation and casual self-education

You can get a commercial IPv6 tunnel for a few $tens/month from IPv6Now, and also a
free tunnel for playing with  - http://ipv6now.com.au/services.php

There are several pointers to more IPv6 deployment and familiarisation resources at
