In Victoria unicycles are classified as bicycles so you do need a helmet to ride on the road or public land. The police do enforce this rule for unicycles!

I believe it is the same in the other states. Check the website of your roads authority to find out the details.

In South Australia unicycles are not classified as bicycles. They are classed as Wheeled Recreation Devices, which are the same as a pedestrian. As a pedestrian you don't need a helmet and can ride on the footpath or some roads. However, I am led to believe that there are sub-laws (or whatever there called) that states you need a helmet, knee, and elbow pads for these devices. I haven't bothered to look into further yet though. Have been meaning to. I have been riding without a helmet and had police drive past and slow down but not stop. Either they just haven't seen one before and I don't need one, or maybe they don't know what the rules are either.

Check your own states Road Traffic Act. And possibly even call the police information people. Make sure you get an answer in writing (or at least the info for where to locate it).

i have both car and bike licenses... and at no time do i recall seeing anything in our road rules regarding unicycles, but then again maybe i wasn't paying attention to that. Thought I'd throw the question out there so cheers.

Same here. I'm (very likely) moving to Melbourne in July for one semester of studies at Monash. Coming from a small town (pop. 22,650) in the waynorthern part of Sweden (=snowy around 6 months of the year), it'll be quite a difference. As of now, the closest riders I know of are some 260km away.

I've bought stuff from them before and had no problems. I think they might have the same supplier though cause I emailed them too and they didn't have the uni I was after either. Could be wrong though.
