I live in Sydney not Melbourne but have found when ordering e cigs directly from the USA to Australia that the shipment arrives in about 10 business days. It wouldn’t be any different for Melbourne I’m sure. That is pretty quick. All the brands I review on this site are reliable in terms of delivery and offer free shipping too if you buy enough. And if you want to speed it up you have a number of options to upgrade the postage category.
You don’t need to sign for them unless you opt for registered express delivery (which can be a bit expensive, and is only worth doing if you are going for a big order)
I usually get a months worth at a time and so I am fine to upgrade from the free delivery options and pay about $20 to get them a bit faster. The package isn’t so big so it fits in my mailbox if I leave it unlocked so the delivery guy can just leave it inside.

If you are wondering whether it is allowed have a look here http://www.tga.gov.au/consumers/ecigarettes.htm#.U08sR_mSy2g
basically, what is says is you cannot import e cigarettes to RESELL them in Australia. You therefore just have to buy about three months worth and you are ok. Personal usage.
Also, you want to keep your order under $1,000 so you don’t pay customs duty. So there you go. You can buy online overseas (the USA I would suggest) and do it perfectly legally.
All the e cigs reviewed at my site deliver to Australia and are very reliable in terms of getting the electronic cigarettes to you in about 10 business days. I have never had an order not arrive and I have been using them since 2012…
