Australia is a federation of States and Territories, with each State and Territory having the primary jurisdiction over age of consent issues within its territory.

As well as age limits, the law says that two people can’t have sex unless they both agree (consent).

If you don’t agree and someone threatens you or touches you sexually they are breaking the law. Sexual assault includes rape, incest and sexual offences against adults and children.
