Are there consequences for not enrolling to vote in Australia (nsw)?

I've recently turned 18 and my local aec keeps sending me "enroll to vote" forms. Seeing as I don't have an opinion on anything political yet, I don't want to just enroll and donkey vote. I want to enroll when I have an opinion.

So I want to know if I could be fined or anything like that for not enrolling to vote.

    The electoral role is not just to vote: it also gives you the opportunity to be called up for jury service.

    Remember, voting is not just for the Federal election, its the state and local elections as well.
