For 5 minutes going to see a neighbour or to go to the chemist/post office across the road? 5 years old. For longer than that? We haven't yet, maybe in the next year or two.

Sorry if that sounds harsh, but leaving a four year old home alone is just... I've never heard of anyone doing that.. :/

I recently saw a great French movie "Tomboy".
In the IMDB comments, anlgos expressed their shock at the mother leaving a 6yo in the apartment while she went shopping. (spoiler: nothing happened. the story is about the older sister.)
A few years ago, a Swedish Woman was arrested in the US for leaving her baby in the pram outside a restaurant. This is normal in Europe, even in sub-zero weather.
I think Australia is a bit too American.
What if a fire broke out? I dunno - what if a meteorite crashed into the house. Or a truck? He has been told to crawl out, with nose to the ground to avoid smoke. But most adults don't remember that in an emergency, so I don't hold a lot of hope. I just ban him from smoking or cooking until I get back. I realise not all 5yos are so mature.
