An accused right-wing terrorist's plan to wreak havoc across Melbourne allegedly included slitting throats and targeting police with snake venom-dipped arrows.
Phillip Galea, 34, is standing trial over alleged terror plots against Melbourne anarchist and socialist groups between August 2015 and 2016.
He wanted to fight "the left" using acid injections, electrical shocks and throat-cutting, Richard Maidment QC told a Victorian Supreme Court jury on Tuesday.
"I wanted to be going around cutting throats in the f***ing city centre. I wanted to leave a ... f***ing line of dead lefties around me," Galea allegedly told an associate in an intercepted phone call read to the court.
In other conversations captured by authorities, prosecutors said Galea spoke about mass producing weapons using a plastic printer and attacking police with arrows tipped with snake venom and mercury.
"There's a lot of different things you could tip an arrow with that will guarantee that the job gets done," the accused said, according to transcripts read in court.
"There's enough snakes in Australia, they could easily just milk them.
"There's a few other real nasties. I mean mercury's quite good."
Allegedly associated with far-right groups True Blue Crew and Reclaim Australia, Galea is also accused of working on a terror how-to document he called the "Patriot's Cookbook".
"Nobody's suggesting that Mr Galea's ideas are realistic, but we are suggesting that ... this is a reflection of his genuine state of mind," Mr Maidment said.
The so-called cookbook allegedly included instructions about taking left-wing activists prisoner and injecting them with acid, covering them with sewing needles or shocking them with nine-volt batteries.
Galea wanted to target the city's anarchist club, as well as the Melbourne Resistance Centre and the Trades Hall, associated with the union movement, "to eliminate the leaders of the left", the court was told.
He is said to have blamed left-wing ideology for the "Islamisation of Australia".
"It's time to kill a lot of Muslims," Galea allegedly told an associate.
In another conversation railing against left-wing protesters, Galea is said to have told another "eventually we'll put them all in ovens but it'll take time".
At one point the accused talked about seeing an Imam "because you have to know your enemy," the jury was told.
Galea also allegedly said "if you're the f***ing premier of Victoria and you've got a f***ing problem with me I'll take you out".
"I won't f***ing attack you with a knife, I'll f***ing cost you your f***ing job."
Galea was first arrested when police raided his Braybrook home in November 2015, but he later claimed authorities only collected a fraction of his documents.
"I do all of this stuff on my mate's computer and I just carry it around on flash drives to work at home," he later told an associate.
Evidence seized from Galea included a video about how to make a shotgun and references to the explosive TNT and making smoke bombs, Mr Maidment said.
The accused terror plotter was arrested again in August 2016 and remains in custody.
His trial is expected to continue on Wednesday.
