Well I am not sure about Australia but here we do have computer hacking laws
and a simple "Your current computer activity appears to be illegal and you
may be prosecuted if you do not cease and desist" dm to the computer may be
enough.   You of course also make sure that you have a proper logon privacy
message in place prior to logon that requires an OK click.
Here is ours:
THIS SYSTEM IS FOR USE OF AUTHORIZED PERSONS AND ACTIVITIES ONLY!
Activities may be subject to monitoring, recording, and periodic audits
The system and all content are property of CCPL and are NOT considered
private.
The organization may access any users accounts or communications.
Anyone using this system expressly consents to the above and to all CCPL
Policies and Rules regarding
computer and Internet use and security.
  OK

This should cover you legally at least.
