Hi mate, yes they do make it some what difficult over here, a lot of paper work and waiting around to get your hands on a rifle. No semi autos or pump shotguns (On different licensing you can tho).Good shooting, and nice rifle. I've been considering one of those myself.
On a different note, what's it like, being a shooter in Oz? I thought after the great gun theft of a few years ago, it was difficult if not impossible to follow our sport in Australia.
