To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
A public place is defined as:
A place or part of a premises that is open to, or used by the public, whether or not for payment, and whether or not only open to a limited class of persons it includes:
‘Obscene’ has been interpreted by the courts to mean conduct which ‘Offends against the susceptibilities of the citizen by violating… contemporary standards’
‘Wilfully’ means intentionally so, being ‘dacked’ would not suffice, provided you pulled your pants up in a timely manner nor would passers-by seeing you naked in your home, provided you did not know you could be seen from a public place
The offence is most frequently prosecuted where a person intentionally exposes his or her genitalia in public, or in view of a public place however, context is crucial to the determination of the charge for example, section 633(6) of the Local Government Amendment (Nude Bathing) Act 1996 lists a number of beaches where it is permissible to bath naked
