Off to Oz on Wednesday for a month, I've contacted an FTO over there and asked if I can do an hour with an instructor just to get Oz in my logbook really. I've been quoted what seem like very high prices to my UK wallet, around $350 per hour including instructor and landing fee. Is this the going rate?

You'll get a better response if you post on DG&P General Aviation & Questions - PPRuNe Forums (http://www.pprune.org/dg-p-general-aviation-questions-91/)
Just remember that flying Downunder, you will be inverted all the time. ;)

That's on the high side, but I guess it depends on the aircraft and the airport. Sounds like a quote you'd get from a larger flying school operating out of a busy airport.
I'd see what flying clubs are in the area, you should be able to get something for around $280 per hour.
Can you tell us what airport that quote was for?
