Family Benefits - where to declare

Where in the online tax return do I enter the Family Assistance/Allowance payments that I received?
Could not find an answer whether or not I actually have to enter those anywhere.
I expected that those payments were already pre-populated, just as my small work and interest income, but apparently that is not the case.
Please advise.
Thank you!

Some Centrelink payments are tax-free and don't go on your return. Generally if they are taxable the ATO do a good job of picking those up and pre-populating those.

@MCAaccountants: Thanks for the quick response!
Makes sense, no wonder I didn't see anything specific to our assistance payments...
