Hi Eric, as you'd see from my reply to Manu below, there are pink taro (Talo Niue) growers up near Cairns. I suggest if you're up there between December and February, you'll find a few growers selling pink taro at the Rustys Markets on Sheridan St on Saturday and Sunday. I'm sure they'd be more than happy to give you some planting material. Hope that helps.
