Just on the access to the management console you can actually change the 
default region to Sydney so you can at least then access the management 
console without issues.
If you use multiple regions and multiple availability zones you 
shouldn't have any issues with downtime.
It really depends on what your trying to do with the platform, plus not 
all services are available in the Au regions which can be an issue.
While we are on the subject of AWS and networking, they are probably 
already working on this, but they need a point of presence in Perth for 
Cloudfront as it would improve laytency issues with traffic not having 
to go to Sydney or Melbourne depending on the provider.
