Was cycling across a road in the city yesterday and got told off by a non-cyclist walking the other way. It was on a pedestrian crossing . I checked the rules when I got home and sure enough , it is not legal to ride across a pedestrian crossing , you have to dismount first. Unless you move to Qld , where it is ok.

The vehicle was initially behind me, and overtook to cut me off. I had riding at about 5 km/h, being cautious near crossings when some drivers bully pedestrians. If I had been riding at 30 km/h, I might have crossed the left traffic lane before the vehicle.

Please watch out for drivers not following the road rules.
