You could simply go to your local plant nursery and choose from their stock. However, most nurseries in Perth stock only a few native plants - and many of these are not from WA and require a fair bit of water.
We have a "catch 22" situation in which they don't stock our plants because there is little demand and so few people look for them and consequently there is indeed little demand. By all means ask them to get in the plants you want, to convince them there is a demand.
