    Sell it and get a good s/h8" or 9" down there. You'll get a great picture and save yourself some dosh...

    On the whole projectors will put up with a lot of punishment whilst tranporting.

    I've shipped sevaral around the globe now and not had a DOA yet. Just like any delicate bit of kit provided it it packaged correctly no harm will come.

    Things rubbing on the lenses are one to watch, just boughts a projector where some one used tissue paper between the box and the front element of the lenses and the vibration in transport has scratched them.

    Not sure if you will have to invert the image ;)
    Good luck down under
