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.
