Do not listen to anyone who has answered this question. Australia only allows native species of snakes to be kept as pets. This is because of the kane toad outbreak the Australian government does not want another non native species in the country. But if you want a python there are many to choose from in australia. You can get a spotted python, childrens python, coastal carpet python, irian jaya carpet python, jungle carpet python, maklots python, scrub python, and olive pythons, But since you have not had any experience with snakes yet i would suggest not getting the maklots python, scrub python or the olive python.
