    Hey, mate! It's Orion is upside down! Oh, yeah -- you're down under!

    Very nice image for a first attempt. 30 seconds, even with an 18 mm (wide-angle) lens will give some star trailing due to the earth's rotation during that time period. Looking at the largest image version, the stars are noticeably streaked. You might look into "stacking," the process of making several shorter exposures, then "stacking" them with PhotoShop or Registrax (a freeware program favorite amongst amateur astrophotographers).
