That's kinda why i'm leaning towards sun scald as opposed to BER. I've had BER before and based on the OP location, I'm thinking sun scald.

That's a good article though voodoo. I lost 6 plants worth of squash last season to BER, It's a bitch.

Right on, guess its a calcium deficiency. The plant walls are built by calcium so a deficiency would lead to this.

So assuming that it is BER, can I at least recommend some sun protection to rule out sun scald? That hot Australian sun is no joke and I think that supplementing with calcium and a sun shade would be a good idea. Neither would hurt and you could rule out both problems very easily.. Keep in mind though that calcium deficiency isn't as easily solved and takes time to make a difference in the plant after supplementation.
