Here is the base calculation for Australia.

Based on a $130 Canadian retail price, 40% discount to the Distributor, 30% discount to the retailer, 10% GST, CAD/AUD exchange rate at parity:

There are three transactions: Distributor buying the devices from Kobo, the retailer buying the devices from the distributor and the customer buying the device from the retailer.

$160 Australian Retail Price:
