Is it legal to die in Australia?

Accidental death is in no way illegal in Australia, but euthanasia is. This is assisted death for those wishing to die.

For a brief period of time in 1995, in the Northern Territory it was legal, but that was overturned in 1996. This has always been a hotly debated topic.

Suicide is also illegal in Australia, though I’m not sure if you could be fined after doing it.

Assisted death is illegal in;

  • Queensland
  • New South Wales
  • Victoria
  • Australian Capital Territory
  • Tasmania
  • South Australia
  • Western Australia
  • Northern Territory
