Quidditch is believed to have become popular in Australia in the 18th century.

Australia also has its own National Quidditch team and National Quidditch Stadium. The Australian Quidditch League also includes teams from other countries of Oceania.[2]

Australian, just as many other Antipodean Quidditch players are characterised by their speed and showmanship. Two dominating teams had so much enmity to each other that a popular response to an unlikely claim or boast arose in Australian wizarding community: "Yeah, and I think I’ll volunteer to ref the next Thunderer–Warrior game."[2]
