If you haven't already done so, check out the Country of origin thread...

Although that thread is not definitive, some member's had E92s and E91s that were made in Germany.

I think that country of origin for Oz delivered cars is not fixed and that BMW changes it from time to time to better load balance its capacity against demand. I'm assuming your 320d is the new improved model with reduced fuel consumption (5.4L vs 6.0L/100km). It may just be that the new 320d is currently only produced in Germany (?)
