Second question, do we need to get the notarised "permisso" from my wife in order for us to pass immigration without her or is that not necessary if he is travelling with me on his Australian passport?
Complex situation I know that's why I thought I would ask and hope someone has some information on this.
Just to play it safe, I were you, I would get the permisso as he's the child of a Peruvian citizen.
The permisso will cost less money than that they refuse him to board the flight. Airlines don't refund fares if people show up at the airport without the correct visas, travel documents,... It's the responsibility of the passenger to get his paperwork in order. And flights to Australia aren't cheap so you will lose a lot of money.
And I would also ask the Australian immigration services what the procedure is. If you arrive with your child in Australia they might ask about where the mother is. If the mother is foreign and doesn't live in Australia, then they might hassle you about that.
