Hi Randolph,

I doubt Eve is on the market yet. For those I think you'd have to wait for Montague Orchards to release it for public sale. They are a good apple though. I planted about 20 - 30 Eve seeds last year as a novelty, and have since lost them (as in mis-placed somewhere). At the moment Montague and Coles have an agreement, and Coles are the exclusive retailer of them (fruit only).

Braeburn on the other hand isn't all that uncommon. Woodbridge Fruit Trees still has some available right now:

Dwarf ($29): www.woodbridgefruittrees.com.au/dwarf-apples/63-braeburn.html#/9-tree_size-standard
Semi-dwarf ($19): www.woodbridgefruittrees.com.au/semi-dwarfing-apples/222-braeburn-semi-dwarfing.html#/10-tree_size-small

They are in Tasmania but do mail order. Since Braeburns aren't all that obscure, you may find other suppliers closer to you. There are quite a few suppliers of scion (bud-wood clippings), but that would require some more work on your behalf, and also includes a higher possibility of failure.

Another alternative for you in Victoria is grafting days at heritage fruit organisations. It so happens that the Heritage Fruit Society is holding a Grafting and Tree Sales Day at Petty's Orchard (Templestowe) on 6 August this year, and another at CERES in Brunswick on 12 August. They have Braeburn and can supply and graft one for you on the day. Note though, that they will be bare root and the graft junction will be delicate until it matures, so it also carries a distinctly higher chance of failure (but better chance than if you grafted yourself, if you are inexperienced).

Someone may know a local Victorian place for you to pickup a Braeburn, but that withstanding, Woodbridge will get you one to your door. I have a few orders with them and they haven't started delivering yet, but it will be soon. I received an order from Yalca just last week, so their bare root trees are already being sent out, Daleys have just started releasing theirs (although my orders haven't yet been dispatched). So now is the time to act if you want them from Woodbridge this year.

Oh ... forgot to mention that they will be supplied bare root.
