I was looking for some case decisions on custody, when I came across this:
The father tried being reasonable, offered a number of settlements and compromises, all rejected by the mother. Her behaviour went severely downhill. She was trying to take the child away from him to hurt him.
Luckily, the judge saw through it and the rulings were fantastic. The first ruling awarded the child to the dad with sole parental rights and the second awarded the dad with nearly $200,000 court costs from the mother.
This is a landmark victory in Canada because the judge ruled that the woman was being unreasonable and awarded full custody to the man.
Both judgments can used to bolster your Australian case precedents for your case.
