    I'm fairly sure that UK games will still work as they're both classified under PAL.

    I once imported an AU (Animal Crossing) game for my Scandinavian Wii. It worked fine.

    Yeah I know for certain that is the case for Wii. Whether it has changed for the Wii U; I highly doubt it.

    Well if the Wii U is E(PAL) then yes.
    Check the firmware of the Wii U, i think the only firmware available right now are E, U and J

    Most European Games work fine on Australian consoles. You've nothing to worry about.

    Australia has always been part of the European region when it comes to games, same thing with the 3DS. I think you can check the firmware in the settings and be able to see that it's the E version.
    As already pointed out the Wii U comes locked to either Japan, US or Europe, the region locking isn't more specific than that so don't worry.
