The consumption of buckwheat in Australia is minuscule. The bulk of that consumption is from expatriate Japanese living here and the few Australians who have enjoyed buckwheat noodles in Japan and have gone to the effort to find either a Japanese store or a Japanese restaurant. Australia does produce buckwheat: it is grown in Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales. Under no conditions could buckwheat be considered a major crop. The vast bulk of Australia’s production is exported.
