Are cyclists allowed to ride across a pedestrian crossing?

There can be confusion surrounding what to do when you’re riding a bike and approaching a pedestrian crossing.

Bike riders and cars share the road in many states and territories.

The Transport and Main Roads department in Queensland put out a question about riding rules on their social media.

If the bike rider wants to use the pedestrian crossing, are they allowed to ride their bike across the crossing, or should they dismount and walk their bike across?
