I can vouch for Bintel near Piermont Bridge Wentworth Park in Sydney. I bought my new bins & scope from them. They had a very good range of binoculars. There is a lot of info on their website. Ring beforehand to check they have the bins you might be interested in. I bought the Bushnell's 10 x 40 something ( but money was an object for me, also the upset factor if the bins are lost or broken). The more expensive  bins were better but I am very happy with mine. I bought my scope at the same time.
John insisted on going to the shop rather than getting a mail order as it was a major purchase for me. He was right. He checked the bins by looking at a place in the shade in the distance and looking at the definition. It was a very worthy test.
Sue Lashko put me onto the shop and gave me a good idea of what to buy.
Cheers Julienne
