10% GST if over $1000 including freight, 0% if under. Sellers can be very negotiable on the declared value if you ask nicely.

What you have said is correct - but what is the import duty? (from a country where we don't have a FTA) - value will be over $1000.

Correct ... GST and duty are two separate things. GST is 10% because the suit will be over a grand but you will have to check the tariff codes out for dry suits- best of luck with that little task. The duty will be about 5% though given we have dry suit manufactures out here in Oz and they are protected.

Cheers Baz - did some further hunting on the customs website and like you said - "best of luck" - but it seems that most diving gear has a 5% duty rate, but I couldn't figure out what drysuits came under.
