A US Pending Patent is in the US only. Do a search at IP Australia to see if an Australian patent has been filed yet. If the US one has only been recently filed they might not get to Australia for another couple of years, however once they do and find out you’ve ripped off their idea then they could go after you because they’ll have a priority date on their invention dating back to when it was filed in the US.

Best to get some advice from an actual Patent Attorney though.
