Unfortunately, Australian versions of Quicken doesn't support QIF export,
which is how we would do it in the US and Europe.

Some folks have saved Quicken reports as text files, then used a converter
to massage them (with a bit of work) into QIF format, or even directly into
GnuCash XML format. Perhaps one of them can provide more details. (Or search
the mailing list archives for their previous posts.)
