Ok, couple of things. I don't really have a problem with taking the characters and putting them in a different setting. Those kind of stories can be quite interesting if done well. But how much do you know about the time period you have chosen?
Firstly, wasn't Australia still being used as a penal colony in 1812? I mean, the first British settlement wasn't founded on the island until 1788 and that's about 24 years earlier than your story. Not really enough time for the place to grow respectable enough for a peer of England, especially since for years the British used Australia as a veritable dumping ground for criminals, bankrupts, political dissidents (mostly Irish) and other "undesirable" citizens. Why would a man as wealthy as Lord Malfoy take his wife there?
Also, why would Hermione's parents allow her to go, unchaperoned, on this trip before she was married? It was considered improper for an unmarried woman to even be left alone in a room with a young man. For Lord and Lady Granger to allow their only daughter to go halfway around the world with someone she's not married to would be completely out of the question. This strict behavioral code would also apply to names. If Hermione and Draco were brought up properly, they would not dream of calling each other by their first names until after they were married. Even married couples did not address each other by their first names in public. This was a no-no among the upper classes.
I doubt Lord Malfoy would be visiting Paris, since England and France were not friendly at this time. England fought against Napoleon's armies and navy during the earlier years of the 19th century. In 1812, Napoleon was invading Russia and attempting to use the Continental System to block all trade between Britain and mainland Europe. Needless to say, the British were not best pleased with France and probably wouldn't be visiting Paris.
And Hermione wouldn't need to get married at 16. That's a bit on the young side, even for Regency England. Most girls made their debuts into society around that age (16 or 17) and would then be married around 18 (or older). Hermione is very far from being an "old maid" and I doubt her parents would rush her into marriage that quickly.
Have you read lots of Jane Austen? Or perhaps seen some of the movie adaptations? If not, I would suggest reading some of her novels. They're not an actual historical source, but Austen wrote about her contemporaries and the books are a good picture of life in Regency England. Do some more research about the time period for this fic. You're a good writer and this could be a very interesting story if you make it a bit more plausible and historically accurate. E-mail me if you have any questions. Good luck!
