The child's skull was found on September 12 last year at the Basin, north of Mona Vale Beach.
Investigators enlisted the help of anthropologists at New Zealand's University of Waikato, who used radiocarbon dating to conclude the skull was about 700 years old.
The experts concluded the skull belonged to a child between four and six years old, who was not Indigenous.

The media gives disinformation on everything it ever presents.
The Genographic Project is seeking to chart new knowledge about the migratory history of the human species by using sophisticated laboratory and computer analysis of DNA contributed by hundreds of thousands of people from around the world. In this unprecedented and of real-time research effort, the Genographic Project is closing the gaps of what science knows today about humankind's ancient migration stories.

I seriously doubt that skull is a child or washed up on the shore. It looks like it was just placed there on the beach. The fact that the teeth are still in strongly suggest that to me. I say it's a hoax.
Source How to clean a skull:
Once the skull is clean and dry it can be sealed with varathane to help retard cracking but it may turn yellow from the spray. Spray (or paint) the skull with 2 light coats and 1 final, thick coat of varathane. Painting the teeth and skull with diluted, white glue before applying varathane helps too. If teeth start to crack, try filling the cracks with super glue to reduce further fracturing.
