I have been trying to locate a reliable reference for the definition of a 'penalty point' and came across this:

http://www.findlaw.com.au/arti.....-a-pu.aspx

In Queensland, 1 penalty unit is the equivalent of $100, while, in New South Wales it’s $110. Finally, committing an offence in Victoria is an expensive proposition, 1 penalty unit there is worth $119.45.  

Does anyone have another reference? Couldn't find anything on NCAT or Fair Trading websites

This is from the NSW Local Government Act:

Penalties for offences are expressed in penalty units. Under section 17 of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act 1999, the amount of a penalty unit is currently $110.
