Mate, I think you got a number of replies last time you asked the same question.
If you are really worried about termites then just get a pest control agent out to treat the perimeter of your house.
The chances of termites making their way up and into a Jarrah roof is quite remote. All the old picket fences were made from Jarrah and they sat in the ground with very little attack from termites. Termites simply prefer other timber. They would probably prefer to eat out your particle board kitchen cupboards before they would head up to the roof space to eat Jarrah.
Just relax and don't worry about your roof specifically, just carry out the typical termite control measure and your roof will be fine.

Also you should consider getting regular termite inspections. I recommend that you get a thermal imaging report and Termatrac inspection as it is the most thorough and accurate method today
