Generally drivers are required to give way to their right. However, there are many additional give way requirements such as: at intersections or crossings; when in slip lanes or moving away from the edge of the road; and to certain vehicles such as buses and emergency vehicles.
Most provisions are contained in Part 7 of the Australian Road Rules which contain detailed descriptions of a driver's obligations including extensive use of explanatory diagrams.
