are u sure you need 30 Amps? allowing for diversity unless several people working with power tools at same time you should not reach any where near that much. however if you do u will need a 6mm swa to keep in volt_drop limits,
you can run buried or on fence with swa, but don't forget unless u notify bldg control first & pay fee you must get work done by part p leckie, see projects section.
If u reduce load to say25 Amps u can use a 4mm swa cable, regards SPARX
