Even if you had a trade mark it would be registered in Australia rather than
the USA and so only of slight use to you.

You might ask your lawyers to look at 'Maxim's v DYE' and at 'Taco Bell v Taco
Co of Australia'. These are two cases where passing off was considered across
large distances (ie overseas).

Your case would be hugely strengthened by evidence of Australia Post having
some dealings or trade in the USA which would give rise to a reputation that
could be protected.

Personally, I'd be also looking at the possibility of registering a trade mark
in the USA.

Just a few thoughts from someone who isn't an intellectual property lawyer...
please give me a call if you want more info on those citations.

Regards and good luck
