Shorting US stocks - Brokerage accounts for Australians

Hi

I currently have an interactive broker account, but they don't allow Australians (or at least me) to have margin accounts required for shorting US stocks. I have been shorting stocks for a number of years, using different instruments (or creating synthetic positions using options), but wanted to have the ability to straight out short stocks.

Any thoughts or recommendations?

Thanks
