I'm surprised AUSIX isn't in there, or was it already removed after the
Exodus collapse and closure of their Union St, Pyrmont facility where
it was located?

There was also a Paradox Internet Exchange in Sydney (Skygarden, Pitt
Sydney), but we pulled out of there a couple of years back leaving
Paradox to peer with themselves, and they've been through liquidation
at least once since then, so the exchange quite possibly isn't there
anymore :)

There were some other IX's - one more in Perth, a few buildings down
WAIX (WAIX is in QV1, the other IX was in BankWest, the same building
PARNet network is hubbed out of - but PARNet connected to WAIX not the
"other" IX), I'm not sure if it's still there, one in West Sydney (I
forget the name of it) and some guy who set up a 33k6 peering exchange
for small ISPs in Melbourne (I haven't paid much attention to what
happened to that...).

AusBone are attempting to set up some regional IX's in Australia, such
Newcastle, Wollongong, etc - none are actually established yet though.
