Bringing simple (travel) medication into australia . Also for kids


I've read this guidline on the health gov au site about bringing travel medication into australia but I'm still uncertain ...

Certain section read "In some cases the import and export of such medicines may be prohibited unless ..." and figuring out regulation 5H is tough. => "Provided that your medication IS NOT subject to regulation 5H".
Further down it reads "For all medicines that you are carrying, ensure that you have a prescription or written authorisation"

My Question:
We are travelling with two small children (1y & 3years).
We will be carrying normal travel medication ... something for a headache/fever, the stomach, diarrhea, a simple cough syrup.
Do we really need a prescription for medicine that is freely available in any pharmacist ?
