You'll need a regulator & gauge assembly on the bottle to reduce the pressure at the jug. Then get yourself a short length of air hose with an air chuck installed on the end of it. It should be pretty simple.

Don't know what your tanks look like in Australia but here they look like this. (note this is a small tank)

Look for deals on regulators at eBay. :D

make sure you use a regulator on your co2 tank. co2 tanks typically run around 800 psi. mcmaster.com sells co2 regulators but theyre kinda spendy, you're gonna spend at least $100 on one

post us a pic of these 330 gram co2 containers.
it doesnt seem logical to make a disposable 330 gram co2 cartridge. the 12 gram co2 cartriges are made the way they are so they can be disposable, theyre cheap and easy to make. a 33o gram canister that must be pierced doesnt make sense. post some pics dude

i cant find a pic but i think the soda stream carbonator has a valve built in in the form of a button so you just stick your 330gram bottle in then you can use it in small amounts and im trying to ask where i can get one of these ""buttons""/valves so i can use the co2 in small amounts. :?
