    Google is your friend. http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/roa...ral/index.aspx explains what you need to import a vehicle. Modern RoRo ships bring in railway locomotives on specialised low loaders so a Unimog camper shouldn't be a problem.

    There are different rules for trucks and buses but the document on the linked page explains it. In any case, you must have an import approval before you can do anything.

    I would love to see this on the road

    If it newer than 1/1/89 there may be some hassles in compliancing it. If older it will be relatively easy.
    Then of course there is the GST on the vehicle value and all the costs associated with bringing it over. Import Duty may well be a consideration as well. On cars it was 15% when I brought in 3 GTAs, and then it dropped to 10%, (+ GST) but being a truck things might be different.
