Looking for info on renting or buying a boat in Australia...

Heading to Australia in end of November for a multi-sport trip involving some motorcycle touring, kayaking, surfing, etc.

Am going to bring my paddling gear, but did not want to deal with a boat unless someone out there with experience thinks its a good idea relative to renting or buying a creeker in situ. Going to fly in to Melbourne. Hoping for a run down the Franklin and assorted other whitewater runs in Tasmania and areas somewhat near Melbourne. Been looking closely at the Nymboida River area and Tasmania. Any help with links to places that can help with kayak hire, shuttle help or local paddlers down there that may want to hook up in and around that area would be greatly appreciated. Without question, the run that is most important to me and is on the "must find a way" list is the Franklin. Not looking for a commercial experience at all. Sooooo... What do you know about boating down under, finding gear and good people to boat with? Any positive suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
