Here's an idea

If you call Schumacher and ask for their agent's contact number in Sydney -they have one there !

they are cheap for container, will take a month or so.

i think US to Sydney was around 550 USD so should be similiar

Google: "Tradelanes Melbourne", and you should easily find Tradelanes Global Solutions Pty Ltd.

They handled my bike´s return to home from Oz in Apr-2008, by sea, and I´d say that at least back then they had a very good price (I payed less than 700 euros total, including everything at the receiving end). They´re in Melbourne, but had an agent in Sydney. Should be able to handle airfreight, too, if you´re feeling rich!
