The Australian Government’s Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner website: https://esafety.gov.au was created as a one-stop-shop for online safety, providing up-to-date information and resources. This website provides Australian children, parents, carers and educators with information and advice about online safety. The Office also operates a complaints system so Australian children, young people and adults can report serious cyberbullying and illegal or offensive material found online.
