I initially had problems tyring to purchase the Mavic Air in AU$ from dji.com - it only gave me a USD option - and I couldn't choose an Australian shipping address... Eventually I noticed a profile setting to switch to Australia and was able to change this and place the order - but this didin't seem to be there on the initial checkout page.. so if you are having similar problems, I suggest that you go look for it.

Anyway... I was eventually able to place my order ..It will be interesting to see if they learnt from the Mavic Pro shipping debacle, and have plenty in stock.

I am interested to see shipping status updates for Australian orders... so if you have placed an order, please update this thread with any status changes

My order was placed 2018-01-24 02:50:58 (UTC) - No shipping Status yet

DJI Store in QLD... Interesting... I am not aware of any.

There are a number of DJI stockists... e.g. JB HiFi and Apple, but they don't necessarily get stock beforehand... and it actually took them several months after I already had my Mavic Pro (bought directly from DJI) before they had ANY in stock...

Wow Cool... I wasn't aware of that ... Good to know..

They don't currently have the Mavic Air even listed on their website though (https://www.d1store.com.au/)... would be good to know when they get them in stock...

You could have bought locally as might be subject to GST and duty as I suspect as the cost will be above the aud 1000 duty free allowance, the local stores have the MA at aud 1299 which is the same as the DJI international store.

GST and Duty should not be an issue... I have bought direct from DJI a number of times and never had a problem...

Local providers are OK if you don't mind waiting, but none of them (even the authorised DJI resellers) have it in stock at the moment...

Yeah, hopefully the customs clearance will go through quickly, I wonder what DJI put the declaration value at ?

Any movement on your DHL tracking ?

Interested to see if DJI live up to their claims

I think if I order the fly more combo from DJI, I'm definitely going to be charged duty and gst, aud 1600 is way over the limit, I suspect it could be around aud 250 as customs adds the value of the free shipping.

Going to have to buy locally to save some money at the expense of a delivery delay

Lets see, US price here https://www.wired.com/story/dji-mavic-air-drone/ at the current Aussie dollar rate just sneaks in under the GST at about $999.

Typical Aussie greedy traders as listed add about $300 and whine and whinge about why nobody is sucked in by their bullsh*t anymore. Well the world is a bigger place nowadays!

Hi Webco,

Glad you got your Mavic Air, I ordered mine on the 27th so fingers crossed It arrives soon and gives me a tracking number. Can't wait to fly it and get ready for Europe.

You were lucky you didn't get the duty/GST hit; I wasn't that lucky last time around. By law you have to pay GST for anything over $900 (i think; this might have changed).
I ordered the Mavic Air a week back (from an Australian online store - https://www.dronespro.com.au) and got it delivered today. I did not wanted to order something that might get hit by the GST and unnecessary delays.
