In a proper club run race, yes. If they say you don't require a license, then you're not covered by insurance, and they're risking their cycling australia accreditation. Given that Marconi are a well established club, they're probably doing it by the book, but there are people out there who don't.
BTW, you can get a day license, but you'll be up for $33 or so on top of your race fee.
