Do I have to use my trademark in Australia prior to filing? Do I have to use my trademark after registration?

No use is required for filing or registration in Australia, so long as you have an intention to use the trademark in Australia in the near future. There are no filing bases in Australia just like in the UK and EU.

Trademarks must be used in Australia within 3 years of the date of registration. A trademark that is unused for 3 years or more can be removed from the register.
