Many families wish to undergo genetic testing to understand whether they have the abnormal expanded CAG repeat on the huntingtin gene, which is the gene responsible for Huntington’s disease. Genetic testing is available in all states and territories of Australia, and many states have regional centres. 

In Australia, genetic testing is available to people 18 years or more.
