Hitchhiking is not illegal in Australia, though the lead up to it normally is. Obstructing, soliciting or distracting road users is an illegal act. So in essence, the act of attempting to hitchhike is illegal.
On top of this, it’s also extremely dangerous. You never know who you are getting into a car with or picking up.
99% of people would be reluctant to pick it a hitchhiker unless, of course, it’s a smoking hot babe in short shorts. 99% of men would pick up her.
