Hi, Math0rz, you're starting the competition pretty early! It's only the just start of term one!
And Rod, yes, that's the right page (it has the right information but think it's for Victoria though)... I've entered this competition many times before, and we have it at my school.
Now, Math0rz... there are hundreds of topics to choose from... but you need to choose a topic that you're interested in. You're not going to get it finished it you don't do something you like. So, choose a subject you want to find out more about and look for the maths in it. Once you have a good topic, you'll start seeing maths everywhere! I remember once, our teacher told us to give him any topic we wanted, and that he would be able to create a maths project around that topic. He succeeded, too.
It could be anything from your family's new kitchen renovation to planning a trip to the moon. Also, remember that it's not all just maths, and that presentation counts too.
MathsIsFun already suggested some good topics, and you may also want to look at the previous Winning Entry Titles (here and here) to spark your imagination.

Is this something to do with it: http://www.mav.vic.edu.au/studact/mtq.htm ? (that is the 2005 page)
Anyway, if you are after topics, you could investigate lots of things.
Some ideas to start off with: Prime Numbers, Fibonacci, Fractals, Tessellations, Probability, Properties of Triangles, Parabolas, Proofs of Pythagoras Theorem, Imaginary Numbers
