In kenya paws paws are grown at the same latitude as you over 2000m and on the atherton tableland at latitude 17 at 1000m.There is around 0.6 celcius mean cooling with each 100m alt in the tropics and it is expressed more in minimums but there is little seasonal temp variation.
Anything that can be grown in central qld or SEQ should grow there especially on basalt soil.I reckon you don't have to be saddled with just yellow paw paws but even the good red bisexuals like solo should ripen in a sunny spot.You can order seeds from Thailand of several good ones and those from Chang Mai should thrive.
Cuttings can be unstable,more prone to disease and less productive.It may noy be worth pursuing that method of propagation.
