    Bringing decorative knives into Oz

    I am hoping to emigrate to Cairns QLD next yr. My son is a citizen and also lives in Cairns. He had a decorative knife collection and would like to have it on display in his house in OZ. I have checked the customs and police sites and am a little confused as to whether he should import or can i export. Also I am unsure which knives fall under Customs control and which fall under Police control. I have tried several contact emails from Customs and Police sites and they are just not getting throug. I would appreciate your assistance in this matter
  3. I know the ruling is that you can only buy land to build a house or buy a house that has not been lived in, but does anyone know if you go on a 600 visa whilst waiting for a 143 visa, is the FIRB likely to authorize a purchase of an established property. I am looking at purchasing in Cairns, so don't know if it varies from state to state thanks
