I suspect that the sub-regions that got added at
http://download.geofabrik.de/ got added because someone asked for them,
so you could always try that!
Failing that someone who's not on a mobile phone connection would need
to download the .pbf for Australia and then split it with Osmosis
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmosis). Given the shape of the
state boundaries I'd have thought that simple lat/long based splitting
would work, with only Vic/NSW/ACT being at all "complicated".
