Basically, there is a guitar I really want, a vintage hollowbody, on ebay from a reputable seller, so there is no problem with the quality.

But, they're in America, and I'm in Australia. Would anyone have any idea on shipping, and if I'm going to end up getting a broken guitar once it's travelled overseas, regardless of insurance?

I would insist on a hardcase for distance like that
