Geomagnetic Disturbance Warning (16 October)
Dark sky sites have the best chance of seeing anything, and always allow around 5 minutes for your eyes to become dark adapted.
Here is the near-real time satellite view of the clouds http://satview.bom.gov.au/
As always look to the south for shifting red/green glows, beams have been reported consistently over the last few aurora and a large green "blob" has been seen.
The all sky aurora camera in Northern Tasmania at Cressy may be helpful.
