Don't know about Australia but you could buy a near mint OM-2n on ebay in the UK for about GBP 60.00-80.00 (AUD 100.00-130.00) or about GBP 150.00 (AUD 250.00) newly CLA'd from a dealer so I would be tempted to replace your old one if I was in this position. It depends how attached you are to your old camera.
Thanks for the info John. I think once shipping back and forth is added it would come close to the local repair price anyway. I'm not sure I'm comfortable with shipping it OS and being apart from it for ~2 months either..
