You could grow the Turkish pumpkin, you would have to plant the seeds mid winter and have warm soil to germinate the seeds.

I live near Bundaberg and at the gardens I work at, a lady planted sunflowers 2 months ago. We are picking the flowers now - quite stunning a bunch of five heads in a vase. I have Kent or jap pumpkin growing now but won't be ripe for another 4-6 weeks. I say so often here it is too hot to be growing crops in late Nov and Dec unless you are protecting them from the sun. Sweet potatoes would probably grow. They grow here all year round.
