Mr Zuhbi is facing multiple terrorism charges, including one count of knowingly giving support and resources to a terrorist organisation, and one count of engaging in a hostile activity in a foreign state.
The former Sydney man is also facing three counts of providing support for another person to engage in a hostile activity in a foreign state.
Mr Zuhbi is currently undergoing a mandatory 14-day quarantine in a Victorian corrections facility before he is extradited to New South Wales.
His arrest comes after an ongoing operation by the Australian Federal Police, NSW Police Force (NSWPF), the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, and the NSW Crime Commission, following an investigation into the man's alleged travel from Sydney to Turkey in 2013.
Mr Zuhbi appeared before Melbourne Magistrates' Court this morning via video link.
AFP Commander of Counter-Terrorism Operations Stephen Dametto said the return of the 30-year-old demonstrates Australian authorities will continue working with overseas counterparts to manage terrorist threats.
"Anyone who fights with, provides material support to, or associates with terrorist groups, is committing a serious crime and will be subject to the law," Commander Dametto said.
At its height, the Islamic State controlled significant areas of Syria and governed the lives of up to 12 million people.
