Can you buy a car in Australia if you only have a NZ driver's licence?

A friend in Australia told us you couldn't buy a car there unless you had a Australian driver's licence!

Did your daughter buy with cash, or with finance through a car dealer?

You'll find it almost impossible to get finance or take out a loan if you have no credit history.

I'm moving to aus this weekend and would like to buy a car when I get there. Cash of course. Can I put the car in my name with just a New Zealand license?
