Protection Sports in Australia

So I am a little interested in IPO or Schutzhund, or at least some form of protection sports. I really love viewing the action, and yes, I have only viewed videos but I would like to view it in real life and maybe, just maybe, would like to participate one day.

I was also wondering what to expect if you did end up giving it a go? What does the training involve, is it weekly, daily? Can only certain types of people participate? Also, probably my biggest concern is looking for a club or training classes. I have no idea where to look! I have tried to search for clubs or classes online but have not found anything. I really don't know much about it and I think that such sports are heavily frowned upon in Australia. Does anyone know why?
