Split your shipment into 3 or 4 boxes and get it couriered down (or post).
By keeping cost of goods + freight under $1K you aren’t liable for import duties and GST.

If you are only trialling the business I guess you don’t have a Turnover of $75K to have to register for GST. So don’t until you have to. Makes accounting costs cheaper as well as import overheads. Just remember to factor in a possible 10% price increase should the business prove successful.
