Getting your firearms license in Australia might seem quite a daunting task at first, especially as the rules and processes can differ so dramatically from state to state.

As a new hunter, navigating the complex rules of hunting can be quite a challenge, especially when it comes to figuring out what species can be legally hunted in Australia. This is compounded by the fact that every state and territory seems to have different rules and regulations surrounding wildlife classifications.

In this article, we provide some information on the different game species of Australia, as well as where and how they can be hunted.
