Default Acceptance of Scottish 'Highers' qualifications at Australian Universities

Hi
Does anyone know whether Australian universities accept the Highers qualifications for entry to university or whether they require completion of either 6th year studies in Scotland or completion of Year 12 in Australia.

Thanks
GG

Foreign qualifications may well be accepted, but bear in mind that most qualifications lose some value when taken across national borders.

Highers are fine. Australian unis are used to dealing with students from all over the shop.
