For prescription medicines you need a label on the bottle from the pharmacy that lists what it is, and the doctor detail and your name. Customs will confiscate if they are unsure what it is.

Also you might want to contact Customs before you come to Australia to confirm it is allowed (for example some cold medicines are controlled substances in some countries and not in others).
