Here is an old (rough) guide conversion, though these things are always up for debate!

USA Australian
A0 = M1
A1 = M1
A2 = M2
A2+ = M3
A3 = M4
A3+ = M5
A4 = M6
A4+ = M7
A5 = M8
A5+ = M9 / M10

The latest Mt Buffalo Guidebook (2006) lists a slightly different conversion with overlapping grades as follows;-
A0 ~ M1
A1 ~ M2 / M3
A2 ~ M3 / M4
A2+ ~ M5
A3 ~ M6
A3+ ~ M7
A4 ~ M7 / M8
A4+ ~ M8
A5 ~ M8 / M9 / M10

Note: Australia has an open ended grading system known as the Ewbank Grading System.
