Yes to most.  Surely you can check for yourself?

Most being trademarks or recognised names, would require the owner to
actually register the name, unless it's clear the names are not to be used
for something that confuses the known name.

You can have Toyota as long as you don't cause confusion to the consumer
with the Toyota companies and it's subsidiaries.

You can't have 2000olympics as it's contains the word Olympics, you should
now that anyway.  You will need permission from the IOC to obtain that name.

mcdonalds is also a famous name, as long as you are a franchise licencee or
provide a statement that you will not use the name for any of the McDonalds
subsidaries (Hambers, McDonalds house, etc) then you can apply for it.

Sydney is available, surprisingly.  The policy, allows registraion of a
place name, although there is a priviso that the name will be used to
promote the place for all business in the place.

As to price. Depends on the reseller.  I can't sell directly to you.

You can currently purchase through Direct Innovations in Sydney or apply to
be a registrar yourself.
