    Flashing to keep water out.

    Also, seal the gaps around the window - between it and the frame to prevent air ingress (e.g. with foam rod, low expansion foam, bits of batts, newspaper...)

    Thanks Joynz I must say overseas are more advanced especially Canada and Europe there they know how to seal a window.

    Thanks mate
    Did exactly that last year with great results with the foam though it is good to see the introduction of flexible tubing around the window.
    What material would it be looks like flexible updm.
    Bunnings seems to have something similar from 6mm to 15mm called cap rod made out of type of rubber in hardware store section
