I have written a parser for Australia based on the feed from willyweather.com.au.
Instructions and code can be found here: https://github.com/safepay/rainmachine
Willy Weather is a commercial API that uses the Bureau of Meteorology data and wraps it in a modern Json API framework that is easy for developers to consume. The first 5000 calls are free, then the cost varies based on data requested, but is less than $0.05 per 1000 calls.
This parser detects your location based on your lat/long settings and suggests the closest station ID's. You then enter and save the station ID of your choice and the parser does the rest.
I hope that this can assist anyone else looking for a local Australian weather source.
