Top 10 Weirdest Australian Laws That Are Still in Effect

Just Now

1. HOT PINK HOT PANTS. First in our list of bizarre laws of Australia is this. Apparently, in Victoria, you cannot wear hot pink hot pants after midday on a Sunday.
2. NO POTATOES PLEASE. Almost everyone in the world loves potatoes, but the weird Australian laws prohibit you to have more than 50 kg of potatoes at a time.
3. COVERED SWIMSUITS. Another one in our list of strange laws that are in effect is this masterpiece. Planning on going to the beach in Brighton Beach in Melbourne, you are in the need of a new swimsuit.
4. NO DRINKING AT A PUB. Why does one go to a pub? To have a good time with their mates but Australian laws want you to have fun with responsibility. It is illegal to get drunk at a pub.
5. KIDS CAN SMOKE BUT NOT BUY CIGARETTES AND ALCOHOL. The Bizarre laws of Australia forget to cover one basic point. The Australian law bans kids below the age of 18 years to buy cigarettes and alcohol however, the funny part is that this law doesn’t say anything about smoking or drinking.
6. DON’T TOUCH ELECTRIC WIRES. If you get electrocuted to death then you will have to pay fines to the government. Apparently, according to the Australian laws, it is illegal to touch electric wires that can lead to your death.
7. SIX INCHES OF CLOTHING. Just another story of strange laws that are in effect in Australia. Ironically, if you are going to the Gold Coast, your bikini must not exceed six inches of clothing.
8. DON’T ASK YOUR FORTUNE. Fortune telling and tarot reading are illegal in this country because the Australian laws believe in making one’s own fortune.
9. DON’T CHANGE THE BULB IF YOU AREN’T QUALIFIED. Is your bulb fused? Are you going to change it? Are you a professional electrician? If not, then back off.
10. DON’T BE A WEDDING CRASHER. Yup, it is illegal by the law to be an uninvited guest to witness someone’s holy matrimony. You can get a fine up to $10,000 which is really a huge amount to put at stake for some free food and good music.

8 Weird Australian Laws you Wouldn't Believe they Exist

3 hours ago

1. In Western Australia, it is illegal for people to have more than 50 kgs of potatoes in one place. Yes, potatoes!! Police even have the right to stop and search people and vehicles if they suspect that they might be in possession of more than 50kgs of the vegetable.
2. It is illegal for people to walk on the right hand side of a sidewalk in busy Australian streets. If you walk on the right side of a busy street police have the right to stop you and give you a fine – no matter how ‘foreign’ you are.
3. If something was stolen from you and you put up a reward ad for the return of it, it is illegal to include a “no questions asked” policy. A fine of $500 applies if you put up an advertisement about your stolen property and mentioning that no questions asked upon its return.
4. Crashing weddings and funerals is illegal in South Australia. Sorry wedding/funeral crashers, fun is over in SA because a $10,000 fine applies and I know you’d rather put that on rent.
5. It is illegal to take a pigeon you find on Australian streets as a pet. It’s also illegal to hurt or kill them. A tad logical though.
6. Making artificial rain by interacting with clouds through aircrafts or any other man-made way is illegal. But why would anyone wanna do that?
7. It is illegal to get drunk in a pub. Drink as much as you want but the instance security feels you’re drunk they’re going to kick you out. If you fail to cooperate they won’t hesitate to call the police where legal action will be taken against you.
8. There is no law that prohibits children from smoking. Under 18’s can’t buy cigarettes but there is no specific law that prohibits them from smoking.

10 Bizzare But True Australian Laws LY Lawyers

5 hours ago

1. When in drought don’t try to make man-made rain clouds. In Victoria, it is illegal for citizens to take the weather into their own hands. Under the Rain Making Control Act of 1967, it’s against the law to make rain clouds.
2. Make sure you cover up when you go to Brighton Beach. Don’t worry about getting sunburnt on Brighton Beach in Melbourne. Apparently, swimmers must wear a swimsuit that goes from neck to knee or risk being charged with indecent exposure.
3. Gold Coast bikinis must not exceed more than six square inches of material. If the swimsuit laws on Brighton Beach are cramping your style you could try heading up to the Gold Coast where, apparently, bikinis must not have more than six square inches of material.
4. Only qualified electricians can change a light bulb in Victoria. How many Victorians does it take to change a lightbulb? Well, if this old school law was followed, then only electricians would be able to change a lightbulb or risk a $10 fine if they are found changing lightbulbs unattended.
5. When there is no urinal nearby you are allowed to urinate on the rear left tire of your vehicle. Forget stopping on the side of the road to pee in the bushes.
6. Don’t try dressing up like Batman and Robin if you want to stay on the right side of the law. Holy masquerade Batman! Unless you’re in Gotham City it’s against the law to dress up as Batman or Robin.
7. Fortune telling is against the law. You’d better think twice the next time you want to go and get your palm read. Evidently fortune-telling or the use of any other type of “crafty science” is illegal.
8. Children can use cigarettes, alcohol or other contraband. Although it’s illegal for children in Australia to purchase cigarettes and alcohol apparently it’s not against the law for children to partake in them.
9. Don’t wear hot pink pants after 12pm on Sundays. Just in case you wanted to time warp back to the seventies, then this might change your mind. According to Victorian law, you can wear hot pink pants Monday to Saturday.
10. It’s against the law to touch electric wires that cause death. According to this law, it’s ok to get slightly-singed by electric wires just make sure they don’t electrocute you to death.

Weird Australian 'Laws' Fact or Fiction? Go To Court

2 hours ago

1. Possessing 50kgs of potatoes. It has been claimed that in Western Australia it is an offence to possess 50kgs of potatoes. Sound strange? This one is fact!
2. Rewards for the return of stolen property. Some have claimed that you cannot offer a reward in South Australia if you indicate there will be no action against the person.
3. Disturbing weddings or funerals. If you have come across those claims that it is an offence in South Australia to obstruct or disturb a wedding, a funeral, or any religious service, you may be surprised to learn that this is fact.
4. Faking births, deaths or marriages. It is true that, in Queensland, it is illegal to publish a notice or ad that falsely reports, expressly or by implication, that a child has been born, a person has died, a funeral is planned or has occurred, a couple has become engaged, are about to marry, or have been married, or that a job is available (Summary Offences Act 2005 (Qld) s 21).
5. Walking along the left-hand side of the road. Many tourist websites claim that in Australia it is illegal to walk on the left-hand side of the road. This is largely fiction.
6. Injuring pigeons. Have you heard that it is an offence in both SA and Victoria to kill, injure or take, or enter onto a property intending to kill, injure or take, a homing pigeon unless you have lawful authority to do so?
7. Rain-making. Did you know that in Victoria it is an offence to undertake any rain-making activity unless you are authorised to do so (Rain-making Control Act 1967 (Vic) s 9).
8. Is the size of your fridge legal? Thinking of selling your 43 litre fridge in South Australia? Think again. Section 58B of the Summary Offences Act 1953 states that you cannot offer to sell, sell, or hire a refrigerator or ice chest or similar that has any compartment bigger than 42.5 litres.
9. Tying your goat to your vehicle. Think it’s a joke that there is a law prohibiting you from tying your goat to a vehicle in Victoria? Think again. It is, in fact, an offence there if you harness or attach your goat or your dog to a vehicle and drive it in or through a public area (Summary Offences Act 1966 (Vic) s 8(c)).
10. Road rage by drivers of public transport. Next time you see your train, tram or bus driver getting upset with passengers or other road users in Victoria, rest assured that they are not allowed to engage in road rage.

Weird Australian laws: Which rules are real, and which are

Just Now

1. It’s illegal to be in possession of more than 50kg of potatoes in Western Australia. This is true. For now, at least. Western Australia’s powerful spud regular, the Potato Marketing Corporation — which is the last of its kind in Australia — has the power to stop and search any vehicle suspected of carrying more than 50kg of potatoes.
2. You cannot swim at Brighton Beach, Victoria, unless you’re wearing neck-to-knee bathers. It’s plausible this rule was enforced during more modest times a century ago.
3. It’s illegal offer a reward, no questions asked, for the return of stolen property. Yep — this is actually an offence in South Australia and Tasmania. In these jurisdictions, if a person publicly advertises a reward for the return of property that’s been stolen or lost — and the ad indicates no questions will be asked upon the return of that property — that person can be found guilty of an offence and slapped with a maximum fine of $500.
4. You can be fined $200 for touching electrical wires that cause your death. It’s a strange penalty for sure. An image of this purportedly legitimate sign from Newcastle, NSW has circulated online for years, attracting ridicule from across the globe.
5. It’s against the law to change your own light bulb in Victoria. Many people believe that unless you’re a qualified electrician, it’s illegal under Victorian law to change a light bulb in your own home — and doing so will attract a $10 fine.
6. It’s against the law to disrupt a wedding. It is, in South Australia. The same goes for funerals, too. According to the Summary Offences Act 7A, any person who intentionally obstructs or disturbs a wedding ceremony or funeral — whether secular or religious — is guilty of an offence and could face a maximum penalty of a whopping $10,000 or two years’ imprisonment.
7. It’s illegal to be near or inside a house frequented by thieves. Various websites claim this unfortunate law really does exist in Australia. In Victoria, the Vagrancy Act 1966 indeed stipulates a person can be found guilty of an offence if they are the occupier of a house or place frequented by reputed thieves.
8. In the absence of a toilet, you can lawfully urinate on the rear left tyre of your car. The thing is, in one way or another, public urination is considered an offence everywhere in Australia and there are no exemptions for using a car tyre as a makeshift urinal.
9. It’s illegal in Australia to walk on the right-hand side of the road. Not really. It’s actually the opposite that’s closer to the truth. According to all Australian state and territory governments — and common sense — if a pedestrian is walking on a road where there is no footpath, or no reasonable access to a footpath, they must walk on the side of the road that faces approaching traffic.
10. It’s illegal to hurt a homing pigeon. Aside from being plain wrong, it is absolutely an offence to interfere with a homing pigeon, according to the summary offences acts in Victoria and South Australia.
