Victoria currently lists swords (both iaito and shinken) as prohibited weapons, illegal to own without a licence or exemption.

Hokushin Shinoh Ryu Iaido is very fortunate to be included on a list of exempt organisations in a recent update to the Control of Weapons Act 1990. Our paid up members are allowed to bring into Victoria, buy, sell, possess, use and carry a sword.

There are conditions to the exemption, which all members (Victorian and otherwise) should make themselves aware of. You can read them here.
