As PingMonster points out you can buy an A77 body within Australia from TopBuy for under $1000. Yes it's gray, but as the company is based in Aus and not Asia, you have a statutory warranty of at least 12 months on the product, and the video would be PAL in any case.

I would be very wary about buying from HK. Long way to go to get it fixed, and I don't think Sony Australia would honour a warranty issued there in any case. Worth at least phoning Sony in Aus to check.

As long as you have the tourist warranty its not a problem. I have already started a discussion here in Australia over a minor issue.  I have their service people involved and the customer relations people involved and my camera body is HK bought and I have the tourist warranty.  Not a single issue with the warranty being honoured in Aus.
