That Yeti is my dream bike! But in the land of downunder we have something called “Australia Tax” which makes anything like this a no go. The tax is basically where importers markup the prices extortionately. An example is a Santa Cruz 5010 i was looking at which sold for $3500USD in America but in Australia it was priced at $5500USD. Our one and only importer imports all the cool bikes so there is nothing we can do about it, which means me it is strictly Trek, Giant and Specialized.
