Mary they certainly are. Aussie disposals have them but you may have to shop around. These ones look like a shrunken version of the 20ltr size ones, the outlet is the same size though. Blackwoods also have new ones which are half the height of the 20 ltr ones. I find these ones more useful and the fit in the carrier for full size jerries.

OOPS, didn't read your post properly. They are 10 ltr not 5ltr ! Never seen a 5 litre jerry.

Even Bunnings sell 5 lt metal jerry cans. Only Red Petrol one's only, not Yellow Diesel.

Not sure about size at this distance from observation but did see a bloke carrying a stainless steel jerry away from Sydney camping etc show about 3 weeks ago--it was probably a 10 litre in retrospect and I probably might have bought one if I had seen them in the show somwhere.
