Prices for the whole Alpha range are a joke in Australia.

Sony USA RRP for 70-400G is $1599.99
Sony AU RRP for 70-400G is $2699.99

even with adding shipping and GST!! buying for USA would still save you over $800.00

Thankfully there are a few aussie stockists who have the 70-400 for a bit less. I'm going to put together a list of 'wants' and go to them and see what sort of deal they can offer me. Then I'll compare it to how much it'd cost to get it in the US and, depending on the difference, I might just be taking a holiday to the US instead!

But really, $1800 for the A77 is WAY better than I was anticipating. Based on their 'normal' price discrepency (ala 70-400G) I was expecting it to be well over $2500AUD.
