On initial entry to Australia

Hi, i got my PR visa and i will be going for my initial entry to Australia for a couple of weeks next month, my question is that will there be any kind of forms to fill on my initial entry as a PR that they will ask me for things that i will be moving with me (furniture, electronics, etc..) so they can be entered without customs? I know this happens for new PRs in Canada, but is it the same in Australia?

Thanks.

Hi. I got my Permanent Visa grant on August 31st and entered Australia in Brisbane on October 13th. I had a copy of the grant letter, and I grinned at the agent and told him I was entering for the first time as a permanent resident. He looked it up, smiled at me, welcomed me, and that was that. It was in the system, so no probs. Your shipping company will handle the documents that are necessary for customs. I do not recall that the Australian entry forms have any questions about unaccompanied baggage or household items.
