Anyone know if there are any Gibson Garden Tractors in Australia?

Yes, if those are the WW2 tractors with a Wisconsin engine, then there is/was one in the Kerang museum. It originally used at the Catalina flying base at Lake Boga. I've seen only one other in Australia, although I can't recall where.

A bit of research shows that they didn't make the Gibson until after WW2, however, that's the story I was told.

Their first tractor was the model A, Production started in Seattle, Washington sometime after 1938, but moved to Longmont, Col. in 1946...

The one in Kerang is the same as the first one, even has the dozer blade. I've seen another the same model at an engine rally somewhere as well. It wasn't painted, but a runner.
