I have air vents on plasterboard walls in my weatherboard house, built 50 years ago. I am looking to close them to stop air leaks. I live in Ballarat so it can get really cold in winters.
Will I have any repercussions if I close them out? The walls are not insulated. And I have read that by closing the vents can lead to the growth of mould etc

When you change one thing, another is also changed.
This has nothing to do with a building code but more to do with health.
Ask yourself why the wall vents were put in there in the first place
