At the moment I teach secondary. I completed a Bachelor of Applyed Science and then Diploma in Education (1 year, secondary).
I'm thinking of studying primary, but am not sure which course and how long I would need to study. Is full time actually 5 full days? (At the moment I work 3 days while looking after my 2 young boys).
Can I study while I continue work?
Has anyone ever changed from secondary to primary? How did you find it?
Would my pay decrease? I've even working 10 years in government secondary, so slowly I have gone up the pay scale.
Would it be hard to find 3 days per week primary school work in Melbourne?

I can't answer all your questions but with your qualifications I'm pretty sure you could already teach primary as we have a pe teacher and an art teacher - teaching primary full time (NSW). Part time work is hard to find straight up.
When I did my Bach. Ed - it was a 4 year course 3 or 4 days a week - one year it was 5 days as we had 1 day prac and also 4 days at uni! There is a 6 week block towards the end of the degree (could be different at different unis).

I'd say networking is the key to finding work in primary. Also, be careful as there's currently a glut of primary teachers in Vic, heard it straight from the horse's mouth, a professor at the Uni. Many teachers I studied with including me haven't been able to find work and have moved on to other fields.

Im not sure you'd need another qualification? DH and I are primary trained but both now teach secondary school. We're in qld.
