The EFE956BA - Manufacturers instructions specify that if in NZ then this must be connected with a 10mm cable. This is relative to NZ regs.

If you are in AUS then you have two options:

Breaker of 32A on 6mm (Diversity - Not all elements are going to be drawing on the source at one time)

40A 50A or 63A on 10mm (lessening the diversity)

It depends on what usage you are going to load the appliance with... If it is light/normal use then go for the 32A/6mm but if it it party time every day then go for a more rigorous fitting
