Australia is a signatory to all significant treaties that impact on children's rights. The rights and protection of children are governed by both Federal and state and territory law. Persons below the age of eighteen are generally considered children.

Children may be able to give consent to medical procedures where they are either over a statutory age (fourteen to sixteen depending on the jurisdiction), or, of sufficient maturity that they are able to comprehend the procedure and give informed consent.

Children below the age of ten are unable to be charged with a criminal offense and children between the ages of ten to fourteen have a refutable presumption that they are incapable of forming the necessary criminal intent for an offense.

Children below the age of seventeen may not volunteer to join the armed services.

Education of children is compulsory. The age between which children must be educated varies across jurisdictions but is generally between the ages of five to sixteen.

Australian children have a right to access health care via Australia's universal health insurance program and all jurisdictions have additional programs to encourage children and young persons to seek medical care.

Australia has a federal constitutional system in which legislative, executive, and judicial powers are shared or distributed between the Federal Government and those of the six States - New South Wales (NSW), Victoria (Vic), Queensland (Qld), South Australia (SA), Tasmania (Tas), and Western Australia (WA) - and two internal self-governing territories - the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and the Northern Territory (NT).

Australia includes a number of external territories. Of these only Norfolk Island and Territory of Cocos (Keeling) Islands and the Territory of Christmas Island, are inhabited.

Of these external territories only Norfolk Island is essentially self-governing (for example, Norfolk Island has its own health and social security systems); the Federal Government, however, retains a veto power over legislation in some areas.

Thus, the other external territories (and Norfolk Island in some areas) are governed by federal legislation. In some instances, the Federal government has adopted Western Australian legislation and entered into an agreement with the Western Australian government for the Western Australian government to administer the adopted legislation and provide government services to some territories.
