I've seen heaps of camo coloured cars driving around.
Would imagine each state has its own rules and regs though,. Im in WA.

I don't see why not, the colours don't resemble an emergency vehicle, so I think you're safe.

You will be fine - camo is a random pattern and not copyrighted by the ADF.

I had issues with putting the Navy white ensign(the one they fly from the BACK of the ships) as it can be deemed as disrespectful; however, I asked the powers that be and there is no real issue with it. I have a white mini and have the transfer ready to go when I finally get it back on the road. saves me a lot of paint and the Jack is easy to transfer to a decal(the Fed star and southern cross are easy to make up as you can buy them separately...)

Good luck
