Batman and Robin-costumes are legally sold in Australia and there are no laws that prohibit wearing them in the country.The claim that one cannot dress up as comic book characters Batman and Robin in Australia has been spreading online for years. It does not have any evidence backing it, as stated by the ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation).

Australia has laws about not covering one's face completely in a Commonwealth place, such as airports, seaports, and the Northern and Australian Capital Territories for security reasons. However, there are no specific laws about prohibiting anyone in Australia from dressing up as the two characters.

Also, Australian costume websites legally sell those costumes from licensed brands.
