I don't know the exact rules, but just wanted to say I've bought 2-3 used items from Australian sellers in the past, and never had to pay any sort of tax or fee. I am pretty certain if the seller just indicates that the goods are used, you won't have to pay anything.

1 of my purchases was actually for a new item, but it was a private seller not a store. I'm not sure how he described the item in the customs form though.
