I do, if you just want the data.
It's pretty easy to do yourself using free ABS data  and
Postgresql/PostGIS. Mark Mansour has a great blog post on how to
get started with it at http://stateofflux.com/, but unfortunately
his blog got hacked recently and the permalinks are all broken.
The post is still there on the front page though - you just have
to scroll down a bit.
Let me know if just want a data dump, but doing it with PostGIS
gives you lots of power if you've got the time to set it up.
