I had the same problem with the nearest airport (reporting weather facility) 
while only 8 miles distant, with different weather than my location.  There 
used to be an option to enter other facilities than those in the list by 
directly inputting the ICAO code.  It seems to have been swallowed by 

I entered my local station manually in the file  weather_stations.desktop 
located in   /opt/kde/share/apps/kweatherservice.  Make a backup, enter your 
changes and see if it works.   Add the new location at the end of the list 
for Australia (don't worry about it not being in alphabetical order).  When I 
went to the configure kweather step in adding new stations in the kweather 
applet , it was automagically in alphabetical order.  YMMV    You shouldn't 
have any problems on what codes to use, they are fairly straight forward.    
Australia locations start at line 2458 in the file.    Have fun.
