The Australian championships are not a qualifying event except for a few juniors who can qualify for World Juniors in Budapest this year ( juniors can also qualify a week later at the Australian Age championships from April 15-22. )

It is for WUGs too, but not worlds. Note that the article said qualifying for worlds and beyond
