I tried to check the available historic plates today at Transport SA to be told that they have stopped offering them for sale pending the upcoming auction.

Bureaucracy at work. Why not just have a select lot of plates up for auction?

It sounds like they are being greedy. I remember when they had the first auction of historic and marque plates way back in the late 1980's, the Great Plate Sale or somesuch at the Hilton. All the historic low number plates attracted a great deal of interest, then some of less desirable combinations attracted lower bids. Then when some of the plates only attracted very low bids they tried to retract them from sale, until it was pointed out that it was a no reserve auction.

Do you know when the auction is?

I am supposed to be on the email list for notification but haven't heard anything from them (other than to say they are only available by public auction).

"Around the Motor Show" was the best info I could get.
