Firefighter Age Requirements can be found on each state services page you can see the Become a firefighter in Australia menu page. 

To give you a general overview of the firefighter age requirement across the country this is how the services work it.

Generally Firefighters are recruited from 21 - 50 in my experience, there are the odd anomalies around these for various reasons.

Here is an example of how they set the firefighter age requirement lower limit without discriminating on age.

Example: You will need to possess a manual motor vehicle licence when applying. The minimum licence requirement is is a Provisional P2 licence - GREEN licence.
