Bioware are hoping to launch the game on March 1st down under, with Bioware's Stephen Reid being quoted:

 

We can confirm that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be launching in Australia and New Zealand in the spring of 2012. Right now we are targeting March 1st, but that could change as our number one priority is making sure that customers have a great service to play on.

 

Reid is also reportedly looking at ways to get the game working on local servers for those who imported the game. He adds:

 

For those of you who may have already imported the game. We will be investigating solutions to allow you to continue to play on a local server once they come online in March.

 

Local servers is something the great World of Warcraft doesn't even have, as a current, or potential SW:TOR player, does this make you happy?
