changing name

Hello all,

I currently have temporary residency here in Australia. Prior to my relationship that brought me here, I became a divorcee. I never changed my name out of my married name. Now I would like to change my name back to my maiden name. I have the divorce decree to do this. I'm going home in November for a visit and would like to do it then. I can change all my US stuff at this point. My question is when do I change my passport? From reading other people's experiences, it would seem best to change that from Australia when I get back. It is my understanding that after that is changed, I can change the visa, medicare, etc... I'm just trying to make sure I do things in the right order. Thanks for your help.
