Panasonic models can't be hacked to change to region free. You need to get a hardware fix. Best to google aussie sites to find someone

I did it for my PDM 0742.
Turn it on.
From the remote control push 1379.
It will show region 1 on the screen.
Push enter to change it to 9 (region free).
It is done.

Short answer...yes, would you like to invest what would likely be days learning the process? There may be a mod ship out there somewhere, but unless you are willing to modify the PS3 in someway that would likely void any warranties, then you're going to have to find a DVD for your region. A mod without a chip would involve installing linux in addition to the OS that the playstation comes with. I'm sure the process has gotten easier since I last checked, but I found it too painstaking.

SOURCE: Changing the DVD Region code
Legally, the only way to resolve your issue is a new drive, the region code in the drive has been locked in the firmware and cannot be changed by normal means (You can search google for DVD region Code Cracks, but it is not recommended no legal)
Antipiracy laws mandated a limit to the number of times the Region code can be changed (5) and if you are going to be playing a lot of media from different regions, then get another drive and set it to one region (and mark the region on the drive) and use this for the other
