Because Australia is a relatively remote island they are very strict at what is allowed to enter the country. Anything made with wood or resins needs to be declared and food too. When in doubt just declare it anyway. Also if you have been walking in woods or forests and your footwear is not clean they will need you to clean it. It is so that any soil or bugs don't come into the country that may carry different diseases that might affect the wildlife.
It is strict but not scary and they are usually very helpful at the airports.
All the best,
