Yes, they are. I've found a few butchers in my area that sell them. Some of the bigger Coles stores have sold them as well. I'm sure if you ask at any butcher they will have an answer. I've found them to be the best eating of the "lesser" cuts such as oyster blade.
Good luck and thanks for your interest
