Visiting Australia...Paintball info?

This is for any members that are in Australia. I'm heading down to Melbourne for a 2 month visit with a friend down there and wanted to know what the paintball scene was like down there.

Also am I correct that paintball markers are a bit more regulated down there? Would I be able to bring my Phantom with me? (I'm kind of guessing it's a bad idea).

I may just bring my mask with me just in case. I wouldn't mind getting at least one game day in down there if I can.

Looking forward to any info I can get. I fly out in 2 weeks

not sure where i saw this but think better just bring mask since they have tough laws on paintguns. saw some where or heard somewhere where field only for the guns since guns laws are tough.

Simply put, do not bring your phantom, pretty much you will never see it again.
Rental/borrow is pretty much the best option.

Relevent laws for Melbourne. (Victoria)


I'm sure somebody from down that way will chime in to advise where to go to play though.
