As regulations are different here to when I lived in UK, I was able to wire my own house, I then had a qualified electrician test and check, and wire to RCD's. I now want to wire my shed here in Australia, and then get the Electrical Contractor who wired my house to connect to the mains. In UK I used a ring main, 2.5 cable to first GPO, then second etc, when I get to sixth and last GPO, cable returns to RCD. Is this acceptable way to wire here in Australia

No idea of Australian regs, but surely there must be an MCB involved?
