Good morning Nerolie,
It is surprising to hear that the Australian optometrists won't do a one day turn around. As you know, in the USA there are lot of shops that have that service.
Try to find a stand alone optical shop. An optical shop can read the script in your primary glasses and copy it for you into a new set. The main point here is they have an instrument that allows them to read your glasses. So you don't need a new prescription to have an emergency pair of glasses made.
I'm sorry you are having this trouble, it should not be that difficult if you can find the right shop. Bests.
