Before you all pack your bags, keep in mind that Australia has laws banning the exportation of meteorites, unless you manage to obtain an export permit. Not easy.
And no, I don't believe that they would be worth $3000 - $5000 a kilo. As usual the media has inflated the prices!

Geologist rates Cranbourne South strip a hotspot for scientific
trove of undiscovered meteorites
CRANBOURNE SOUTH landowners could be
sitting on a goldmine of
undiscovered meteorites, a Devon Meadows geologist
Tom Kapitany believed it was only a matter of time before
meteorites were unearthed as areas of Botanic Ridge were developed.
Acacia estate, being built near the intersection of Browns and Craig
one of the hottest prospects for meteorites, Mr Kapitany
Any finds could
be quite valuable ? scientifically and financially ?
for those lucky enough to
dig them up, with prices ranging from
$3000-$5000 a kilogram.
?The area now
being opened is the one closest to where the largest of
the dozen meteorites so
far found came to Earth in a shower some time
before European settlement,? Mr
?I would rate it as the hottest stretch along the line
roughly from Pakenham to
