Help - Currency Requirements

No wonder the reg rewrite has taken two centuries and increased the national debt by one hundred trillion dollars, been out of the game for two decades and trying to find on the CASA site the recency requirements for instrument approaches and day/night. The ever helpful CASA search engine takes one to la la land. Thanks in advance chaps/chapesses.

Pretty much everything licence related is now located within the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations, Part 61.

I've linked some below relevant to what you asked for, hopefully this helps. All of these regs are available here: CIVIL AVIATION SAFETY REGULATIONS 1998

Hopefully this helps ans doesn't Muddy the waters further

Alot of the basic requirements (IFR not included) are included here and probably a little bit easier to find: https://vfrg.casa.gov.au/

Takeoffs and Landings - CASR Part 61 E (Reg 61.395):

Limitations on exercise of privileges of pilot licences--recent experience for certain passenger flight activities
(1) The holder of a pilot licence is authorised to pilot, during take-off or landing, an aircraft of a particular category carrying a passenger by day only if the holder has, within the previous 90 days, in an aircraft of that category or an approved flight simulator for the purpose, conducted, by day or night:

(a) at least 3 take-offs; and

(b) at least 3 landings;

while controlling the aircraft or flight simulator.

(2) The holder of a pilot licence is authorised to pilot, during take-off or landing, an aircraft of a particular category carrying a passenger at night only if the holder has, within the previous 90 days, in an aircraft of that category or an approved flight simulator for the purpose, conducted, at night:

(a) at least 3 take-offs; and

(b) at least 3 landings;


(3) For paragraphs (1)(a) and (2)(a), each take-off must be followed by a climb to at least 500 ft AGL.

...

There is also mention within that reg of 1 takeoff and landing in 6 months at night, i believe its generally accepted that also applies by day, however I can't find a reg for that.

Insturment approaches CASR 61M (reg 61.680)

Limitations on exercise of privileges of instrument ratings--recent experience: general

(1) This regulation applies to the holder of an instrument rating subject to subregulation (1A).

(1A) This regulation does not apply to the holder if:

(a) the holder has successfully completed an operator proficiency check that covers IFR operations within the previous 3 months; or

(b) both:

(i) the holder is successfully participating in an operator's training and checking system for an IFR operation; and

(ii) the operator holds an approval under regulation 61.040 for the system for this subregulation.

(2) The holder is authorised to pilot an aircraft under the IFR only if the holder has conducted at least 3 instrument approach operations within the previous 90 days in an aircraft or an approved flight simulation training device for the purpose.

(3) The holder is authorised to pilot an aircraft of a particular category under the IFR only if the holder has conducted at least one instrument approach operation within the previous 90 days in an aircraft of the same category or an approved flight simulation training device for the purpose.

(4) The holder is authorised to conduct a 2D instrument approach operation only if the holder has conducted a 2D instrument approach operation within the previous 90 days in an aircraft or an approved flight simulation training device for the purpose.

(5) The holder is authorised to conduct a 3D instrument approach operation only if the holder has conducted a 3D instrument approach operation within the previous 90 days in an aircraft or an approved flight simulation training device for the purpose.

(6) The holder is authorised to conduct an azimuth guidance operation only if the holder has conducted an azimuth guidance operation within the previous 90 days in an aircraft or an approved flight simulation training device for the purpose.

(7) The holder is authorised to conduct a course deviation indicator operation only if the holder has conducted a course deviation indicator operation within the previous 90 days in an aircraft or an approved flight simulation training device for the purpose.
and for single pilot ops: 61.875

Limitations on exercise of privileges of instrument ratings--recent experience: single pilot
(1) The holder of an instrument rating is authorised to pilot an aircraft under the IFR in a single-pilot operation only if the holder has conducted a flight or simulated flight under the IFR in a single-pilot operation within the previous 6 months.

(2) For subregulation (1), the flight or simulated flight must:

(a) have a duration of at least one hour; and

(b) include at least one instrument approach or simulated instrument approach.

All found in CASR P61.870 https://www.legislation.gov.au/Detai...2#_Toc81486003

In summary:
3 IAP in 90 days, 1 of which in the same category of aircraft ( ie. aeroplane)
2D in 90 days to conduct a 2D APPCH
3D in 90 days to conduct a 3D APPCH
AZI in 90 days to conduct AZI APPCH
CDI in 90 days to conduct CDI APPCH
Circling Approach: Most recent IPC or passed Flight test in past 12 months that included a Circling approach
Single Pilot IFR: Passed test or IPC in a single pilot aircraft, and conducted Single Pilot IFR flight in past 6 months of at least 1 hour and 1 IAP

* the above isn't required if successfully participating in a T&C program or completed OPC that included IFR ops in the past 3 months

Assuming this is for Irex exam, all you need is a copy of Bob Tait Irex extract.
