I’m thinking of buying a new laptop soon. I’d prefer a 2tb ssd hard drive but the current MacBook Air goes up to 1tb. I’m will to pay extra for a 13 inch MacBook Pro but I’d rather not have to spend the extra money if I can help it.

I’m in Australia.

I wouldn’t count on it. If you need it I’d probably just go for the MacBook Pro. The MacBook Air is seen as more of a light use device

The 2018 model had a 1.5TB option which was removed for 2019. I wouldn't expect 2TB to make an appearance; I'm sure Apple would be happy to upsell you to a 13" Pro.

To be honest, either the MacBook Air or the 13 inch MacBook Pro would be heaps better than what I’ve got now.

Though it does look like I should get the 13 inch MacBook Pro.

The weight and size difference is pretty negligible, while the performance difference is quite significant. The Air really only makes sense if it's purely a budgetary concern.

I think new base model MBA will get 256GB as standard and same to MBP.
Not gonna happen. Apple loves to nickel and dime its customers. They'll keep the 128 as entry level and force you to pony up some coin for the bigger hard drive. That's their business model.
