    Absolutely you can. I've bought two from overseas and no issues at all.

    In regards to power, if it's a US playbook it'll probably come with charger marked "100-240v 50-60Hz" universal worldwide. The charger has the two prong plug BlackBerry Premium Micro-USB Charger | BlackBerry Chargers & Cables so you'll need a travel adapter for the Australian sockets.

    If you get yourself a rapid charger, item 3 here BlackBerry PlayBook Chargers | CrackBerry.com it will save wear and tear on the USB socket, and you could just find an Australian cable to connect the charger to the wall socket.

    All the PB hardware is the same it's just the cords that have different endings according to country of use - as some of the posters above pointed out.

    You will need to use a yellow tipped specific to PB cord for recharging - so depending on what cord is shipped with the PB you may need to get an Aus adaptor to use with it, or buy one.

    Or buy the rapid charger specific to Aus. I know Harvey Norman were selling them, maybe $60.
