    A good guide from Ausregistry for any internationals wanting to register .com.au and .net.au

    "Simply put, foreign companies can register .com.au domain names so long as they possess an Australian registered trademark or have applied for one. However, foreign entities should not fret; if your trademark is not yet registered in Australia, a trademark filing number is sufficient to register a .au domain name and it is neither hard nor expensive to attain this."

    The full article has useful links to actually go about applying for a trademark in Australia.
