Really? uPVC? I thought were only chosen for council houses?
Double glazed thermally broken aluminium is the way forward.

I own a uPVC double glazing company here in Adelaide and am therefore in a position to offer you advice. What I would say in short is you must do your homework thoroughly before committing to anything. The product is very expensive here, I would say at least 3 times that in the UK and that is mainly due to the cost of materials (everything here is imported) and the cost of manufacturing (a lot more legislation with cost implications here), starting up costs for this is significant.
Two companies have tried to set up and sell cheaply in the recent past and both ended up out of business - there are so many hidden costs, particularly in a location such as Adelaide. As I said, feel free to PM me I will help you all I can

I would much prefer timber double glazed units in the UK, but would go with ally frames here as they seem to compliment the building style. Commercial section over residential to get some nice chunky frames.

I lived in WA for a short time and windows were a large part of the new houses being built, but still single glazed with sand blowing through them. I was tinting them so did have a close look.
