I did some quick searching on this topic last night. If you're flying them as a hobby then you're fine for the most part but as soon as it becomes a commercial venture you will be in breach of some fairly significant CASA laws. You need to be registered as a UAV operator to keep it legit which will cost +$20k and then some significant annual insurance cost on top of that.

Animal rights groups have been using them to conduct surveillance on farmers who produce "free range" meat. Farming bodies have been up in arms about it but the groups are yet to be fined or prosecuted as far as I'm aware.

Australian farmers aren't good shots any more?
