- Queensland Until recently, there were no legal nude beaches in Queensland. However, following a successful appeal from Ken Wenzel (77), a Sunshine Coast artist and nudist, the Queensland Summary Offences Act 2005 has been ruled not to apply to licensed free beaches.[clarification needed] The Queensland Labor state government and the Sunshine Coast Regional Council have said that they will now consider any approaches for legal nude beaches in Queensland.
Current quasi-legal beaches are:
- South Australia
- Bakers Beach (not Legal, be discreet)
- Mornington Peninsula
- Sunnyside North Beach, Mount Eliza, Port Philip Bay (Legal)
- Great Ocean Road
- Campbell's Cove (Legal)
- Cape Conran
- Cutlers Beach, Wonthaggi Heathlands
- The Oaks, Inverloch
- Western Australia
- Public nudity is illegal in Fiji, but nude sunbathing is legal on resorts.
- Toplessness is allowed here, unlike most parts of the South Pacific, even though there are no official nudist beaches. Bottomlessness is usually seen in private or hard-to-find beaches, but it can still happen in public beaches.
Laws against beech public nudity are generally not enforceable.
