More than $8 million worth of illegal drugs have been seized and 20 arrests made in a nationwide police crackdown on drug importation via international mail.

About 18 kilograms of 21 varieties of drugs were found concealed in items such as cushions, birthday cards and a jade dragon in the operation between federal and state police along with Customs officers in recent weeks.

Officers executed 38 search warrants across Australia with more than $127,000 in cash seized, the agencies said.

Among those arrested are a Victorian man facing charges for allegedly importing 1.36 kilograms of ice from China.

The operation largely targeted Victoria, where 14kg of drugs - including LSD, heroin, steroids, ecstasy, cannabis, methamphetamine, GHB and cocaine - were seized.
