In defence of all Aussies who use Marone and not Maroon, I believe it is the way it was spelled and pronounced back in the late 18th early 19th centuries when you sent us packing over here. It stuck.

That's not a bad idea (#1 litotes) Although the OED shows that the pronunciation for all three variations of maroon (colour, abandon and "rocket") as Maroon, Nutall's Standard Dictionary, 1887 Edition shows (#2) Marone/ Maroon as a single entry "brownish crimson, chestnut". Although to abandon and a runaway negro slave as just maroon.
Ho, hum, should have spent more time in the garden.
Maroon sounds a bit like someone with a moutful of some-thing sticky trying to say Marone.
Are we really discussing this?

I promise to not write another word on the subject after this post, he now retires to his high moral ground.
