      I am also Australian.You can use this tool through a power transformer that steps up the voltage to 240v.You would need to talk with an electrical engineer or manufacturer to find these transformers.
      I tried to do this about 15 years ago.I live in the US and I am originally from Sydney and the transformers were available but limited in their supply.Good luck!
