I am from Canberra originally.

On the academic side, talk to:

Clem Baker-Finch -- teaches programming languages at ANU.

Uwe Zimmer -- teaches first year programming in Haskell at ANU. 

Also anyone who is tutoring for them.

There are also FP people in the RSISE/NICTA lab, but they are more experienced researchers that don't need 
the basics of functional programming taught to them. Eg: 

Michael Norrish -- is associated with the L4 verified project here in Sydney.

At one time Alex Mason was organising some FP events from Canberra, but I haven't heard anything about him for a year or more. I suspect he's graduated by now (was an undergrad at ANU).
