On the subject of what to take and what not to take, does DAB radio work in Aus? We are planning on moving to North NSW. Is it worth bringing our radio or not?

No they don't, you can only pick up FM radio, not digital.

Digital radio in Australia uses the DAB+ standard and is currently available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Darwin. The national government owned networks, the ABC and SBS, provide their current services and a few digital-only services on the new platform, while the commercial radio stations in each market have also been given digital bandwidth. Australia uses the AAC+ codec provided with upgraded DAB+ standard. Source: Check reception and stations by postcode at
