you can get resort teles (or AT bindings/skis) and skins - makes you get up things much more easily than getting scaled "touring telemarks". depends on how "efficient" and serious you want to be. if you're just going to be mostly lax about it, just stick to scaled tourers.
AT gear = 2 X $$$ as resort teles + skins. (150 vs 75)
resort teles+skins =~ 1.2 X $$$ touring skis.
i'd suggest checking out what's available at rhythm snow sports in cooma (can't remember link) they're open 24/7 during winter and you can buy gear if needed, rent gear and get chains etc too.
