The Australian Senate is currently accepting written submissions as part of an inquiry into the "involuntary or coerced sterilisation of people with disabilities".

At a stretch, the "any other related matters" section of the Terms of Reference may also present an opening to present anti-circumcision arguments directly to Australian policymakers (readers from any nation around the world can lodge a submission).

For those who might be interested in making a submission, please read the "Terms of Reference" and "Getting involved in Committee inquiries" sections in full:

We have some threads over at foreskin-restoration.net tagged Australia which might be a good starting point for those interested in researching and drafting an anti-circumcision reply:
