    At any of the larger towns.
    Just go to the Doctors there and ask.
    If you are going to be in Perth I would think that would be the best option as you would probably get your test results a lot quicker, this would be good if you have to get the results in person.

    If you are a British citizen, register with Medicare first(offices in most large shoping centres), and you can see a GP for the same price as Australian residents without having to pay the full cost for private treatment.
    You may have to phone round afew surgereis to gat an appointment and wait a good few days to get a non-urgent appointment. I believe it is usual the counselling is required before such a test, but that may mean just talking to the doctor about your reasons for asking. Lesley
