Mature (M), formerly M 15+, is one of the seven classification categories of the Australian film rating system and one of the six for the computer game system of the Australian Classification Board.

The content of M-classified material may contain moderate levels of classifiable material, such as violence, sex, or coarse language. Material classified M cannot be recommended for viewing or playing by children under 15 years of age, whilst they can still legally access it.

In terms of coarse language, "f**k" may be used, but cannot be very frequent or highly aggressive. Also, any use the strongest language, "c**t" may pass the title at a higher category. In 1993, a new classification was added to the film system, MA 15+, for films that have content that is too strong for the M classification.
