I also live in Australia and have also tried to find sorghum flour. I have been using amaranth flour in place of sorghum and it seems to blend in ok. Amaranth flour is available at health food shops and online. It seems to keep best in a glass container in the fridge.

Hope this helps.

Can't you order sorghum flour online? Anyway there are a lot of other flours but I haven't looked for a match in this case. I'd guess you'd want to look at the fiber, carbs and protein content, and see what is close to it. Of course the taste/texture it imparts will matter, but that's probably more subject to preference.

Here are some gluten-free flours:

Almond Meal Flour
Amaranth Flour
Black Bean Flour
White Bean Flour
Buckwheat Flour
Cashew Flour
Cassava Flour
Chestnut Flour
Yellow Corn Flour
White Corn Flour
Fava Bean Flour
Garbanzo Bean Flour
Mesquite Flour
Millet Flour
Green Pea Flour
Pistachio Flour
Plaintain Flour
Potato Flour
Sweet Potato Flour
Quinoa Flour
Brown Rice Flour
White Rice Flour
Sweet White Rice Flour
Full Fat Soy Flour
Tapioca Flour
Brown Teff Flour
Ivory Teff Flour

There are also certain popular blends, such as a Garbanzo/Fava Bean Flour Blend, or name brand multi-purpose blends.

Hope that helps.

It seems that corn flour is the closest appropriate sub for sorghum, as well as amaranth

Sorghum flour has recently become available in New Zealand, and I suspect we are sourcing it from Oz, so this is probably no longer an issue?

I know this is an old post but I have no drama getting sorghum flour in Australia. Find a middle eastern, indian or african grocery store or fruit market. I buy sorghum flour by the 5kg bag without any problems at all. There are a couple of online stores you can buy it online through... (http://www.wheatfreeworld.com.au or http://glutenfreechoices.com.au/) but they are much more expensive than my local fruit market.
