"Australia has already made encryption illegal."

Don't think so - they have legislation which would allow security operatives to require service providers to push 'encryption breaking code' into a targets communication devices - but last time I checked encryption services were still operational in AUS. They wanted to force WhatsApp etc. into Aus wide encryption breaking but I think they got a encrypted finger.
