National child restraint laws were introduced in Australia on 1 July 2010:
• Children up to 6 months old must use an approved rearward-facing infant restraint and must not travel in the front seat of a vehicle that has two or more rows of seats. When fitting a rearward-facing car seat in a vehicle with only one row of seats it must have child seat fitting points available.
• Children from 6 months to 4 years of age must travel in a rearward-facing or forward-facing child safety seat.
• Children from 4 to 7 years old must use a forward-facing car seat with
inbuilt harness or a seat that is fastened with the regular adult car seat belt.
• From 7 years and older, children must use a child (booster) seat and be restrained with an adult car seat belt or child safety harness or when tall enough, a correctly fitted adult seat belt.
