I use VentraIP for my domains. I have found their pricing to be very good and service is excellent. A .org.au domain through them is actually half the price at $19.26 for two years - https://ventraip.com.au/domain-names/pricing#australian-extensions

This is available as a payment option.

VentraIP also include free DNS with their domains. 

I am in favour of changing domain registrars for the reasons you mentioned. I just want to check though - have you already paid to renew the domain through Enetica? I think I saw a receipt of payment come through this morning.
