If you have a patent in Australia, can a product be made elsewhere e.g. in China by someone and sold in Australia?

Patents are jurisdictional and therefore you can enforce your patent in whichever countries you have filed a patent.  If a product is manufactured in China without your permission and that person brings the product into Australia then you may take action against the person importing into Australia without your permission.
