The answer lies in who you are targeting.
If you are targeting the Australian market then go with the .au
If you want to target the U.S and world then go with a new .com
Google will serve up .au domains more on the Aussie Google.
You could get a new .com and just redirect it to the .au or just build a new site for the .com
How U.S and global searchers will respond to seeing the landing URL as a .au, well you will need to test that one if you decide to go down the redirect path.
Not much you can do about it unfortunately.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
