Australian power is 240V and our plugs are quite different from American
ones. With the current exchange rate, it would probably be quite cheap
to ship some to the US. Standard plugs are 10amp; the 15amp ones just
have a larger earth pin. The only thing is the different wiring, but I
guess that's quite well known by now.
