    yea it definitely was.

    But customs requiring Carnet, and the mandatory AQIS quarantine inspection, as well as insurance requirements, and the fact, that you have to re-export the vehicle from Aus all mean, that you should plan on having the vehicle there for a good while.. in any other case, it will be better to just rent, or buy from there.
