Was just looking about at different editions of the 2002 HB tie-in, as ive been shopping around to get an intact DJ.(http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details2.php?id=479).
There's a nice variation between AU and UK printings (both 1st printings, otherwise identical):

The UK printing on the left is a smaller book, with a more uniform black cover texture.
The AUS edition on the right, has a textured cover, is about 1cm taller and a few mm thicker.

How do you know it is an Australian edition, does it identify itself as that on the copyright page, or is it just the height difference that identifies it?

Identical apart from the copyright page (and size): Griffn press AU vs Clays, St Ives GB
