Convict period 1788-1840

Prostitution probably first appeared in Australia at the time of the First Fleet in 1788. Some of the women transported to Australia had previously worked in prostitution, while others were forced into it by economic circumstances, and a severe imbalance of the sexes. While the 1822 Bigge report refers to brothels, these were mainly women working from their own homes.

State by State Laws in Australia – Coming of age..

Sex industry laws in Australia are determined by State and Territory Governments. ACT, WA, Tasmania, South Australia and New South Wales  are all currently reviewing their sex work laws. Queensland, Victoria and Northern Territory have recently been through legislative changes. Federal laws criminalise ‘trafficking’ (with or without consent) and ‘sex slavery’ (regardless of sex workers’ consent to such work conditions).
