The T1 and T2 were both available in Australia but not big sellers.
I have seen the U2100 on special jobs (on a rice farm) in Australia but I suspect they may have been special order. I may be wrong but like you can not find any reference to general Australian supply. Of course the Australian Army had many U1700 Unimogs which they are selling off now but not U2100.
UNIMOGs are available from your Mercedes Benz truck dealer (or were in 2004). A railway track weedspray company purchased one for use alongside the railway tracks in 2014 from a Bendigo Dealer. As a tanker it felt very unstable, particularly off road. They were governed to 8okmh until the boss signed an indemnity to have it removed so he could do 100kmh. With a high centre of gravity and thousands of litres of watered down weedspray in the tank on the back it is an accident waiting to happen as it wallows every dip in the road

Welcome to the forum.
As Lang said, most Unimogs in Australia were for the Army. They had a team of retired Army engineers making modifications for them. One task the engineers had was to build one into a recovery vehicle for other Unimogs. A seven ton vehicle carrying a seven ton vehicle?
There was one 1950's 0r 1960's small Unimog brought into Australia by a team of Missionaries from Germany who tried to establish a German Christian Mission in the north of the State of Western Australia. An enthusiast purchased the remains of it a few years ago and showed pictures of it on this forum, asking for identification and parts.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
That is what we are all here for. I am sure there are many forum people who are interested in any of your Unimog questions. We always like photographs from your area and we have members from all over the world.

Thanks for your reply.
It's not "only" the Unimog, I'm interested in and have questions for. It's also f. example the Kenworth W-series and refrigerated trailers / reefer trailers (what is correct for this type of trailers?)
I think, there can be many things worth knowing about the Kenworth W-series in this thread
First Kenworths down under
Maybe there are some other threads?
