It can be done over the Internet.  The website is http://www.ipaustralia.gov.au and has information on everything you need to know, including pricing, which is at http://www.ipaustralia.gov.au/get-the-right-ip/trade-marks/time-and-costs/fees/index.html.

Australia is a party to the Madrid Protocol ( http://www.wipo.int/madrid/en/ ) and so you can lodge your application in one member country and have it registered in other member countries.
