Or do what I do and use a US Amazon account tied to a US issued Credit Card. It makes a big difference but in the case of real goods you have to have a US re-shipping setup. I have US based relatives who do this for me.

There are a number of organisations set up to do exactly this - re-ship to Australia. Some will even purchase from Amazon (and Apple, Microsoft, Adobe etc.) at US prices and then re-ship. They allow you to make some very considerable cost savings.
