cookie we found out that clarendon does not install exhaust fans in the ensuite or main bathroom, and they said we could put them ourself if needed but if you had sarking they would have to be ducted as the condensation could run down and drip on the gyprock ceiling

Anti-con (roof sarking) is mandatory if fiting a metal roof. From memory it adds about R1.5 to the roof insulation. It goes on top of the battens, not between them and the trusses.
I think a bag which covers 15m2 is about $75 - I bought it over a year ago now so don't quote me on that

Is it a Tiled or Tin roof? If tiled they do put the sisal directly on the trusses or rafters, then they batten on top. There's no other way for a tiled roof. If a tin roof they put the sisal on top of the battens. If you can afford the extra its worth it, you wont be doing it after.
