Child Sex Offences

Sexual conduct toward children is made illegal by different laws in Queensland. The most serious offences are rape and maintaining an unlawful sexual relationship with a child, which are both punishable by life imprisonment. Lesser charges include performing an indecent act in public, which carries a maximum penalty of only 2 years imprisonment but which will ordinarily result in a term of custody for a person guilty of it in relation to a child (even for a first offence).

This page outlines some of the main child sex offences under Queensland law. Please select an offence from the list below for more information:


If you suspect that you may be under investigation, or if you have been charged with an offence, it is vital to get competent legal advice as early as possible. Our lawyers are highly specialised in criminal law and will be able to guide you through the process while dealing with the various authorities related to your matter.
