I shipped a 3mo puppy from India to the States. It is a long and hard flight, but puppies bounce back with no problem. Contrary to popular belief, the States has no quarentine rule. If the dog has official paperwork stating current shots (rabies is the most important), then the dog is free to enter. In my experience, US customs did not even look at the dog. They just saw the paperwork and approved it. No problem. Just make sure you go to a vet that knows something about importing/exporting dogs. I had a primary vet in Benares, but learned the paperwork wasn't correct for the export in Delhi. So I went to a more up-to-date vet in Delhi and he took care of everything.
If I can import a dog from India (of all places) with absolutely no problems, you should definitely be able to do it from Australia.
