I'm not sure what you are looking for either because collard greens and kale aren't the same thing, although they do belong to the same family (Brassica)

Some people outside the US call collard greens "fresh greens"

I think the names are the same.

It is just that to get Collards in Australia you need to grow them yourself.

To get kale look at farmers market or health food stores instead of supermarkets.

One variety of Kale is borecole, I think that name is sometimes used in Australia.

Sometimes variation on Greens is used as name, "Spring Greens", "Fresh greens" ...

You can get kale in health food shops (e.g. Flannery's) and at organic markets. Collard is something different. I have never seen it sold, but you can get seeds (e.g. from Eden Seeds in QLD) and grow it in your garden.
