You might try finding a local tailor or a sewing shop.
I had one repaired in Paris Texas at a sewing shop once.

Yeah, a shop called Remote Repairs in Lt Bourke St is great if you are in Melbourne.

Thought of looking in your local phone book or posting in your regional forum?

Venus Outdoor Repair on Bathurst Street in Sydney is very good

To the OP: Ask at your local camping stores. They should be able to recommend someone who can fix outdoor gear, though any decent tailor should be able to replace a zipper.
