Welcome to MAKO Australia.

MAKO(Movement Against Kindred Offenders)is an Australian non-government, non-religious organisation run by volunteers dedicated to preventing child sexual abuse and other sex crime,and assisting victims/victims families of child sexual abuse/sex crime.
MAKO was founded in Australia in May 1997, and was officially incorporated as a not for profit incorporation/organisation in May 1998.


Paedophiles/sex offenders are "Terrorising" innocent people around the world everyday, mainly offending against Women and Children.

Child sexual abuse and other sex crime is certainly on the increase in Australia, and affects many THOUSANDS of Australians/Australian families, and is something that can happen to anyone, ANYONE'S "CHILD", partner, relative or friend, so PREVENTION is very important,and should be of great concern to all of us.

ALWAYS BE VIGILANT - IT COULD BE YOU OR YOUR CHILD NEXT.

Current Australian laws are protecting convicted paedophiles/sex offenders,instead of protecting the innocent public.
Most of you would agree with us that to best assist prevention in the community, JAIL would be the best place for convicted paedophiles/ sex offenders..
The FACTS are though,that of the paedophiles/sex offenders that do actually face the courts and get convicted, the vast majority are still receiving very lenient sentences,and then released (if jailed at all) secretly back into the community..lenient sentencing, along with being permitted to live anonymously in the community, is allowing sexual offenders to easily re-offend.

Sexual offenders are even permitted to change their names and travel overseas,and many exploit court suppression orders so they can not be named by the media.

These laws are placing the PUBLIC including YOU and YOUR FAMILY at RISK,as it is definitely no secret that convicted sex offenders and especially paedophiles are likely to re-offend.

"In fact, the average paedophile,will during their lifetime each, molest between 45-135 children".

Did you know that tens of thousands of convicted paedophiles/sex offenders/child killers "ALREADY" live "Anonymously in communities all around Australia", including near schools/ child care facilities/ playgrounds etc,..and as we previously stated and will continue to do, sex offenders and especially paedophiles are likely to re-offend.

As it stands right now a convicted paedophile can move in next door to you,or into your community,and you are "NOT" informed..in WA they do have a government public register of the worst offenders..
(There is more information about the WA register further down the page.)

The Australian government must focus on "Prevention and Protecting the Community".

The "human rights" of potential future victims and entire communities to be better safegaurded from sexual predators, clearly and heavily outweigh any "civil rights" a convicted sex offender currently has,including lenient sentencing and privacy in the community.

Australia needs GREATER DETERRENTS in place to help PREVENT sexual offenders from offending/re-offending, and GREATER PUBLIC AWARENESS to help PREVENT YOU or YOUR child from becoming a victim of sex crime.
The introduction of the following laws would no doubt PREVENT COUNTLESS VICTIMS of sex crime in Australia-

*MANDATORY MINIMUM LENGTHY JAIL TERMS for paedophiles/sex offenders-Australia Wide.

*LIFE IN JAIL "NO PAROLE" for Repeat offenders(paedophiles/sex offenders)-Australia Wide.

*NATIONAL/ STATE GOVERNMENT PUBLIC SEX OFFENDER REGISTRIES.
(Since 1998 MAKO volunteers have been listing offenders online..MAKO/Files Online-Listing Australian Paedophiles/Sex Offenders/Child Killers.. 1000's of offenders listed online) - www.mako.org.au/prelist.html

*COMMUNITY SEX OFFENDER NOTIFICATION - You should be personally notified via mail when a new convicted sex offender moves into your community.
MAKO Members have notified over 80 Australian communites of convicted paedophiles/sex offenders living secretly amongst them via flyers in letterboxes in the offenders area we still do this from time to time but mainly list offenders online..We do have basic awareness/prevention flyers online that the public can be print and distribute in any Australian community. www.mako.org.au/PDF/MAKO_Flyer_awareness_prevention.pdf

The MAKO website offers a wealth of information regarding sex crime,and sex crime prevention,and is a useful method of constantly lobbying the Australian Government/s and Politicians to do more to PROTECT the PUBLIC from sexual predators,as well as offering victim assistance/referral/reporting services,and the "MAKO/Files" Online,a FREE PUBLIC list of names and last known location of well over 2,000 convicted Australian paedophiles/sex offenders/child killers.
The "MAKO/Files" also lists child killers and those convicted of any form of child abuse..

Over the years MAKO has assisted/advised/referred hundreds if not thousands of Australian victims/victims families of child sexual abuse/other sex crime,so don't think it can't happen to you or your family..unfortunately it can..so ALWAYS BE VIGILANT.

Thankyou for supporting MAKO, and helping us to PREVENT and ASSIST VICTIMS of child sexual abuse/sex crime in Australian communities.

Petition published by Derryn Hinch 8-9-2013.

In Australia, the rights of convicted sex offenders seem to take precedence over victims' rights. Especially with paedophiles. Serial sex offenders have their names, photos and addresses, suppressed by the courts on release. 

Unlike Megan's Law in the United States, communities have no knowledge as to who they are or where they are. A public register is a right and a national duty that is long overdue.

We, the undersigned, insist, that by the end of 2014, the Australian governments, state and federal, through their attorneys-general, unite to publish an ongoing national public register of all convicted sex offenders similar to Megan's Law in the United States. Warren Graeme Hayter - Paedophile - Repeat Offender..Hayter has a lengthy history of serious sexual
