All things considered, especially since you mentioned that you are working in remote western Australia, I would suggest the 60D because of the waterproofing. It is a sturdier camera and will put up with a lot more abuse than the T4i will put up with. Many of the stats are the same, but the T4i is a bit newer and a bit faster. The 60D will last longer over time for just a bit more money.
P.S. Personally, I am holding out for the 7D mark2. I have a T1i that I have been using since it came out. While it is still very useful, I am starting to run up to the limit of the shutter actuations. The other good part of the 60D is that it has a much larger number of actuations before it may have issues. I intend on keeping my T1i as a back up, and I suggest that you keep your T3 as well. Having that back up around will give you the opportunity to keep a prime lens on it or a wide angle for a shot that you might not otherwise get.
