We have been advised by the Hang Gliding Federation of Australia that each pilot will need to show proof of an aerotow rating.

For International pilots, we do understand that some countries do not have provision for such a rating. If that is the case, you have 2 options. One is to have proof that you have successfully aero towed in Flatlands conditions. For example your name on the result sheet at a major aerotow meet within the last few years. Second is to get an aerotow rating with the HGFA.
