Other people may know better than me - but I am fairly sure that you will not be able to bring the whisky back on board at Dubai. I am positive, however, that you will not be able to leave the carry-on luggage on the plane. It would be a terrible waste of good whisky - so I would not risk it.

If the whiskey remains in a sealed duty free bag you MAY be okay. You will definitely go through the security screening process. Might be worth asking at world of whiskeys if they know of options and/or issue's taking duty free through Dubai.

We went through a similar scenario recently when travelling home from Lisbon on Emirates via Dubai.Picked up some duty free liquor in the Lisbon airport, in the sealed duty free bags. Had no problems getting this through the security check in Dubai. When we arrived at the departure gate for the flight home in Dubai, they simply box it up and check it in as checked luggage. It arrived on the carousel at Perth airport no problems.

Restrictions on duty free alcohol for flights to Australia from other countries are determined by the Australian government, not the airport.
These requirements state that you will only be allowed to bring duty free onboard on the last leg of your trip to Australia, and that all alcohol purchases must be delivered to the gate by the store (not carried to the gate by the buyer).
Check TravelSecure website.
Note (see GregXL's comment below): It sounds like Qantas and possibly other airlines airlines may handle your duty free by taking it to your final destination as checked luggage.
