NSW are unequivocal on the matter:

Does not include plug in appliances.

VIC only regulate the supply (sale) of certain electrical appliances:

You are free to build your own if you do not sell it.

QLD:

Cant do anything requiring skill without a license.

SA:

No worries

WA:

Though there are exemptions, appliances are considered electrical work.

TAS:

A mess with inconsistent terminology, hard to determine if private DIY work is controlled.


So QLD and WA are restrictive, possibly TAS while the majority of Australia is sensible and allows anyone to make their own appliances. People from other countries think its ridiculous that we cant do the wiring or plumbing in our own houses, Australia is the exception rather than the norm. So the current roundup of Australian states is that two of them are prohibiting hobbyists (or even professionals) from making equipment powered by low voltage (mains).
