Despite not being specifically mentioned as a world tour venue, it seems that Sydney, Australia is set for a Galaxy S III event on May 31. When the venue cities were shown off during the keynote presentation in London, the closest to Australia was an unannounced location in South-East Asia. PC World Australia however, are reporting that Samsung Australia have started to send out invites for an event in Sydney next Thursday. The current official line from Samsung sits a little more discreetly: 

“Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased there is continued interest about our GALAXY range in Australia, but we have no plans to make any announcements at this time.”

Australians are expecting to see Sammy's latest flagship launch on all the major carriers, plus potentially Virgin Mobile as well. Telstra are likely to be eying up a 4G LTE version too.

Even though the SGSIII hasn't appeared on Samsung Australia's front page, it did appear on their support site as i9300 and i9300t and i9303t, on the same day the original report of the invites come out. Hopefully not a coincidence?
