>Did you get customs fees?

I was wondering the same thing earlier this year before I ordered some gear from the US so I sent an email to customs. They got back to me in a day or so and told me that rock climbing equipment came in under general imports and if the value of the goods was less than $1000AU they would be released without attracting import duty or GST.

If the value was over $1000AU the goods would attract a 5% rate of import duty and 10% Goods and Services Tax (GST). The import duty would be paid on the purchase price of the goods and the 10% rate of GST is paid on the combination of:
- The purchase price of the goods
- The import duty paid on the goods
- The cost of freight and insurance into Australia

There are other requirements if the value is over $1000AU that I don't recall around signing declarations and so on. If you need any further details is the address I contacted.
