I read that it was already rolling out on N5 phones in some parts of the world. Anyone know when it will be available as a system update in Australia?

I live in Australia currently actually, and I have the Android L update. You have to download the factory image from here - http://developer.android.com/preview/setup-sdk.html#top (you have to scroll down and click on hammerhead) - and then flash it on your phone. Be warned this is a developer preview, while I am using it for my daily driver, it may not be for you. Be warned you also have to completely wipe your phone when you flash this, unless you do some modifications to the flash.bat to not wipe your device.

No the OTA isn't rolling out, lol. It was just announced and they released a DEVELOPER PREVIEW.... NOT FACTORY IMAGES. There is a difference. The link provided to you above is just that. There's no factory image or OTA for Android 'L' at this time. When there is, it will be posted at this link. Until then, it's just a preview. No source code, no kernel sources, just a preview.

It is NOT rolling out yet. It's a developer preview meant to help developers update their apps. I'd say around September or October we'll see an actual roll out to our devices.

As others have said, there is no OTA, just a developer preview that isn't meant for daily use.

And OTAs aren't region specific, they start getting rolled out at the same time.

As stated Android L is currently only in developer preview for now. No official rollout for a few months. This thread has accomplished what it was created for so for that reason...
