There is a very quiet and inspirational Bhikkhuni who lives quietly in Perth Western Australia - Ajahn Vayama.
She was the founding Abbott of Dhammasara Nuns Monastery (part of the Buddhist Society of Western Australia BSWA).
Her spiritual life is truly inspirational. In particular I have felt a particular affinity given struggles with being a lone practitioner, issues related to accessibility of Bhikkhuni ordination, as well as struggles with ill health.
I think of her as a Spiritual Warrior. No matter the obstacles or adversity, the path to awakening is to be followed!!!
For many reasons, her teachings are not widely available, but are worth attention. I have never had the opportunity to meet with her, or to have any personal contact, but will link a couple resources that I have found so rich in Dhamma
Perhaps Ven @Pasanna , from Dhammasara Monastery would be able to look into getting some more information and resources, and to link them here. It would be a great Dhamma gift
Perhaps also Ajahn @Brahmali may have something to add given the close relationship with Bodhinyana Monastery and a long history of interaction.
Bhante @sujato you were at Bodhinyana at that time as well weren’t you
Ajahn Vayama teaches the overview of Buddhist principles (talk 2) for BSWA. One of the clearest and most succinct teachings on this that I have heard.

There is also quite a bit of information here from Dhammasara Monatery website, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the First Bhikkhuni ordinations
