Australian PAL dvd's work fine for for UK. I can not see why the opposite should not be true.
The difference is the Region Code but I suspect your dvd will be Region-free anyway.
There isn't any special pal-dvd format for australia. So yes it will work.
In fact, as Baldrick states, I just remembered that a few years back I was sending PAL dvds all over the world - including 'Down Under'. And, yes, they played just fine.
The majority of countries using PAL have television standards with 625 lines and 50 fields per second, differences concern the audio carrier frequency and channel bandwidths. Standards B/G are used in most of Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand, standard I in the UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, South Africa and Macau, standards D/K in most of Central and Eastern Europe and Standard D in mainland China. Most analogue CCTV cameras are Standard D.
Systems B and G are similar. System B is used for 7 MHz-wide channels on VHF, while System G is used for 8 MHz-wide channels on UHF (Australia uses System B on UHF). Similarly, Systems D and K are similar except for the bands they use: System D is only used on VHF, while System K is only used on UHF. Although System I is used on both bands, it has only been used on UHF in the United Kingdom due to the black-and-white 405-line "System A" TV services on VHF operating until the 1980s.
thank you all - very kindphilippe
But we're not talking about BROADCASTING, we're talking about simple wired baseband connections (with DVD/BD, HTPC, or media player sources), and in that context there are only 2 kinds of SD systems: NTSC-based, and PAL-based (which includes SECAM material). That makes everyone's life easier.
