Well helmet and boots both need fitting so you'd have to go into a store. Tbh I haven't found that the more expensive helmets fit any better or are much more protective than the lower range ones - I'm very happy with my Dublin Onyx which cost $70 and protects my head well. I also just use Baxter leather jodhpur/paddock boots (again around the $70 mark) and find them fine - topped with a pair of real suede half chaps. Ariat make nice jodhpur boots too - and matching leather half chaps if you want to spend a bit more.
I go to Brighton Saddlery in Kensington - part of the Saddleworld chain I think. There's also Horseland (a store in Dural I think, and a few others in NSW) and Goodwood (in Sydney), and lots of other smaller ones - but it depends on your location.
