This thread will give you information regarding what model rocket motors you can purchase in each state of Australia. I will start a new post for each state.
 
Please note that you must also comply with your states laws and adhere to the Model Rocket Safety Code and follow the laws set down by CASA in addition to the motor laws.
 
This information is supplied as per each states laws and some states are for propellant weight and other states for total motor weight - Please read carefully if in doubt contact your local Dangerous Goods office.

Any person can purchase, possess and use medium rocket motors D,E,F and G motors >5g and <62.5g provided they are current members of an approved rocketry club. If the member is under age and they are in the presence of a person who has authority to be in possession of medium model rocket motors.
 
Any person can purchase, possess and use large rocket motors H and I motors >62.5g <325.0g provided that they are members of an approved rocketry club and have a current PSUL or they are in the presence of a person who has authority to be in possession of large model rocket motors. This also requires permision/certification within the approved rocketry club.
 
Any member who wishes to purchase and possess rocket motors higher than > 325.0g may apply for additional permission from DMP (Department of Mines and Petroleum) with permision from the approved rocketry club President and/or Secretary. this will be approved on a case by case basis.

Queensland- Australian Rocketry Association INC  members who wish to fly High Power Rockets using over 62.5 grams in Queensland may do so you just need the appropriate licence and letter from the ARA. 

All motors below 62.5grams have no restrictions on them.


For more information please feel free to contact the Australian Rocketry Association INC

The best thing about the Australian Rocketry Association INC is you dont need to join a overseas club to fly High Power Rockets one simple cheap fee NOT two and your away

ACT Australian Capital Territory

In the Australian Capital Territory, the use of model & hobby rocketry motors ("propulsion devices") is regulated through the Dangerous Substances Act 2004 and the Dangerous Substances (Explosives) Regulation 2004. These instruments make provision for model rocket motors, and define those to be "commercially manufactured devices designed for the propulsion of model rockets".

Throughout the ACT legistlation, model rocket motors are generally defined as containing less than 62.5 grams of propellant, and generating less than 80 Newtons of thrust force.  Note that while this definition is stated in terms of thrust (Newtons) and not total impulse (Newton-seconds), it would be fair to state that it covers the use of motors up to, and including 'F' types (40-80 Ns total impulse).

How high-power rocketry activties fit into the ACT legislative environment is unknown at the moment, however inquiries are being made and hopefully there will be a resolution


Currently ARA members may purchase up to size F and below with no permits
