Comforts of home...to bring to Oz

Okay, so we are still on track to be landing on July 27th.
Can anyone provide some insight into what we can and can not bring in via air frieght - i.e. are there any restrictions on non-perishable foods we can bring in from home, such as peanut butter and mac & cheese, etc?

Any DAIRY products (e.g. milk, cheese, 3-in-1 coffee, etc.) originating from a Food and Mouth Disease (FMD) country WON'T be allowed, even if it is non-perishable. Here's a list of FMD-free countries: List of FMD free Members: OIE - World Organisation for Animal Health

I've brought cans of tuna through without a problem. If you're not sure just declare it, there'll be no fines and worst case they'll just throw away your food.
