There may be a combination of charges relating to delivery/handling, VAT/tax and perhaps another element.

It is likely to depend on the value of the goods and whether it is > £135.

HMRC website here: https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty

The moneysavingexpert website had an article about this (in the context of importing from the EU, to be fair, but I suspect that the rules from the EU are now likely to be similar to the rules for the rest of the world and it gives you some ideas) https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/buying-online-from-europe-post-brexit/

The Royal mail website also seems to confirm same prices irrespective of where the item comes from:

https://personal.help.royalmail.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7208

Not sure about ordering from Australia, though.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Hello I have a mate looking into the duty and vat rates, but may not need to get the spares from Australia as I've found a company that says they are sure that they can make them,   jezza

A lot of problems is incorrect paperwork, so items held up in customs.
You can either pay the company vat and import duty so it clears customs here or pay it yourself with additional handling costs. couriers charge up to £25.
We have a car part in limbo at the mo as the "UK" company was Germany and hence returning a part wrongly bought for our model is being held up somewhere in the EU.
If you have the part, try a local fabricator for a price.
