I'm not sure that SLUG is the best forum for your question. SLUG tends
to be a technically-focused list on Linux (and occasionally other Unix)
issues. Have you tried asking around on the Whirlpool site, or doing a
Google search on Whirlpool for "reseller" or similar. This is probably
your best bet.
Now there used to be an "OZ ISP" list but I believe this may now be
defunct. To begin your research, you could try to get in touch with a
few major ISPs/telcos (companies like Internode / Agile, People Telecom,
etc spring to mind - but please don't take this as a recommendation) and
discuss their partner programmes with them.
You probably need to ask yourself whether you plan to set up a full ISP
operation (costly and technically complex) or whether you simply plan to
act as a reseller for an existing ISP (shorter time-to-market, less
capital intensive, etc).
All the best. Hope this helps.
