You could always just make domes. I'm sure there is an industrial supplier in Australia that can provide ball bearings.

They were banned after so many people made crap ones with fishing weights, needless to say people got severely hurt from the glue separating from the dart then the weight seperating from the glue

Have you tried asking on Oznerf? http://oznerf.forumotion.com/
They are always where I go for answers to questions about the land of the "Drop Bears"

Hmmm I will go ask there now (I had never actually heard of them)

Those are pretty easy to make. Find a friend/school shop/other shop with a drill press or router and chuck an appropriate bit, then go to town on a sheet of plastic (Usually a cutting board, which you should be able to find in AUS).

You've probably got different prices than I do, but ebay here shows loads of Chinese clone elite-darts for $0.04-0.08 each shipped. Just the materials for slugs cost more than those do.

Otherwise, I'm not really sure what to tell you. Australian Nerf seems to be its own animal due to your rules on projectile weapons of all kinds, so members from there might have ideas on what works best for you.

I would have made a silicone tip mould, but in the land of down under schools don't really have a "school workshop". It's annoying I know.

Those are terrible. They aren't aerodynamic and solder is incredibly expensive compared to the traditional stefan weights. And you might as well make those o-ring darts that are similar because even though they also fly like shit (read: WAY shorter distances and accuracies compared to domes or slugs, or even VANS, silicone domes and sili-tips) at least they're metal free/safe.

Agreed. Also, do you know how I can obtain a silicone tip mould. I am also happy with suggestions for darts other than silicone tips and slugs, as long as they don't give paintball welts, draw blood or are stupidly expensive. Happy nerfing

Are solder and electrical tape available in the Land of Oz?

You could make JSPB magnums.

I hope I am not violating the forum rules by saying this, but their performance is crap period.
