This is completely false.

I refuse to participate in anything SSPX-related and I have no problem whatsoever finding orthodox, traditional Catholicism. I attend TLM several times per week at a canonical diocesan parish - there is no need to go to SSPX parishes here. There are plenty of orthodox priests here (although most of the older ones are quite liberal) and the current generation of pious practicing young Catholics and seminarians are highly orthodox and traditional. Australia is fine for Catholics.

As an Australian, I'd have to agree with the above observations of Raskolnikov. Although I would add it would also depend on the diocese you are in, not to mention the parish church in question.
