Substitute for Tilapia

I live in rural Australia, so the only wild fish I have access to (vs. the farmed basa and whiting at the store) is mostly reef fish since the great barrier reef is only 3 hours away. A lot of the American recipes I'd like to try have Tilapia in them though (which I've never seen here,) so I wondered if something like Barramundi, Grunter or Red Throat Emporer would be good substitutes as they're my fave fish and are easy to come by.
