Not just Australian customers, Apple charges a lot for their products. Only getting them subsidized by a mobile service provider, involving a 2 year contract, makes the phone more affordable.

This can be said of the newest stuff from other manufactures too. A Samsung Galaxy S4 isn't exactly an inexpensive thing to buy outright..
