Since it is spring in Australia, your plant shouldn't be going into dormancy. It may be overwatered, so one thing you can do is repot it in fresh soil. Don't water for about a week. If the roots are damaged due to overwatering, they can't take up water and the plant looks dry even though you are watering.

I suggest reaching out to a bonsai society. Here is one to get you started: https://bonsai.asn.au/about-bsa/
