An Australian woman has recorded a blood alcohol reading six times over the legal limit while driving with three children in the back seat.

The 47-year-old woman has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after officers stopped her in a beachside suburb of Cottesloe in Perth on Christmas Eve.

Police said the three children in the car were aged from 10 to 16 years.

She has been released on bail and will appear in a Perth court in January.
