I see you have several dwarfs, i grew 6 dwarfs the past couple of years and this year dwarf pink passion and dwarf rosella crimson were very productive. I grow them in earth box type containers and both were very productive and tasted good.

Yes, 5 dwarf varieties.
Is there any difference in the flavour of dwarf tomatoes compared to regular heirloom indeterminates?

Looks like a great list to me - different colors, different sizes.Think that will be some of a salad bowl or what ever you will make out of them.

I think you should add Kentucky Beefsteak and Chef's Choice Bicolor.

Maybe next year. I always like to add varieties to an ever expanding list.

The only one I've grown on your list is the Flamee or the Jaune Flamee according to my seed packet. First time I've grown it and it has been the best of all this year. Great flavor and juicy, fairly productive smallish sized fruits, but the skin of the tomatoes is on the tough side...doesn't bother me too much. I just made a grilled cheese sandwich and added some thin slices of the Flamee tomato,yum. I'm having trouble with blossom end rot on my other types but this one doesn't have that problem.

Not sure that these are available down under, the Chefs Choice range sounds interesting to me
