What are the ‘Legal requirements’ in Australia for car child seating?

All children must safely seated in the correct child car seat for the size and age. The car seat must be approved and securely fitted. A properly installed child car seat will make it less likely for a child to be injured or killed in a car crash.

  • The general rules are:

    Up to 6 months – Approved rear facing child car seat.

    6 months to 4 years – Approved rear or forward facing child car seat.

    4+ years – Approved forward facing child car seat or booster seat.

    145 cm or taller – Suggested minimum height to use adult lap-sash seatbelt.
