I am under the understanding that you can no longer call forward to international numbers. They used to have the option available however it was removed as there was scamming/hacking issues that some users had apparently had with it from what I remember reading.

If the skype number is an Australian Skype number then it should work just as a 'standard' Australian number with that respect and should be able to have it forward to, I would think anyway...
