I'm not an expert on this but I don't think so. It's only for completed handheld lasers.
Just don't advertise "laser" all over the package and you should be fine

correct, the restriction is against laser 'pointers' only. You can import complete lab lasers and modules, but nothing that is portable and ready to use out of the box.

Here is the link to customs.

I actually thought I read somewhere that it was illegal to import laser diodes or modules but not according to that it isn't.

Default Re: Importing Laser Diodes to Australia

All non-pointer lasers are legal to own and import in Aus

However, as soon as you build that diode into a host with inboard batteries, it becomes a firearm.

WA is a bit different, they do have laws regarding modules and shows, so make sure to look into that if you live in WA.
