The Bureau of Meteorology (B.o.M.) has issued its outlook for the 2015-16 Australian Tropical Cyclone Season and a less active season than average is predicted. Large swell events are therefore less likely to occur around their coasts.
El Nino (which has been particularly strong during 2015, and generally considered a major driver for reducing the strength of the cyclone season across Australia) is the main reason for this conclusion. It has the affect of reducing the numbers of cyclones which travel across the Australian mainland, also increasing the length of time before the first one of the season occurs.

Their tropical cyclone season runs from November through to April.
