I am afraid that I have no idea. It is electrical and operates on 110-120. I don't know what the electricity is on Australia, but I would love to find out someday. You might go on line to www.cuisinart.com and see what they say.
I do not know why it couldn't but I do not want to say for sure as I am not clear on your concern. It is an electric ice cream maker and the freezer bowl needs to be frozen separately in freezer prior to each use. Hope this helps.
