[BIRDING-AUS] Mistletoebird

Am interested in attracting mistletoebirds to my garden. I live at Joynerin SE Qld ( about 25 kms north of Brisbane ).
Three questions:
1. Are they a common bird in these parts? ( according to Simpson and Day they are, but never sighted one! )
2. Is it true they are only attracted to the Mistletoe tree/shrub (?)
3.  Are Mistletoe trees/shrubs(?) available in nurseries?
