The mountain town of Takachiho-cho remains a place of great importance to Japan's spiritual and natural heritage, and the point where these two things intersect.
You've now added Takachiho Gorge to your itinerary. Get some cultural insight at Amano Iwato Shrine and Takachiho Shrine. Step out of the city life by going to Daikanbo and Kusasenrigahama. Change things up with these side-trips from Takachiho-cho: Tsuno Winery (in Tsuno-cho), Onsen Resorts (in Taketa) and Sumie Beach (in Nobeoka). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Amano Yasugawara, contemplate the long history of Kushifuru Shrine, take in the dramatic scenery at Manai Falls, and contemplate the geological forces at Mt. Aso.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiports are Fukuoka Airport and Kagoshima Airport. In November in Takachiho-cho, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 10°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
