I'm not sure which is the relevant Aust Govt department, however I believe there are very stringent rules on export of military equipment from Australia. This may sound a little silly but considering that vehicles such as Ferrets are still widely used in Africa and SE Asia (the Malaysian Army uses deso converted Ferrets as recce troop leader vehicles to this day) the government here is hyper-sensitive to the prospect of selling arms to the wrong types. Apart from that there may be significant objection on a historical basis if the vehicle has been used by Australian forces or particularly was involved in a specific action.

Apart from that, all the ones I know of are in museums and unlikely to be for sale. Best of luck.
