It appears that 95671 is an official BOM synoptic station, 95671 being the WMO Number. MADIS is the NOAA/NWS quality monitoring system so it presumably gets the data from the WMO Global Telecommunications System (GTS) in BUFR format.

Right - but that station still doesn't appear in MADIS via any of the sources I can find, but it does show up on Gladstonefamily, who is allegedly reading it from MADIS.

So my question is, where does Gladstonefamily get it from?

I can only presume that non-NOAA 'official' met data are restricted and do not show up on MADIS public lists such as those you referenced.

Gladstonefamily.net seemingly has access to the full MADIS dataset because I often compare my data against Laverton and Avalon, both of which are official BoM synoptic stations.
