She was charged with murdering four-year-old twins Madit and Hanger and one-year-old Bol.
Ms Guode was also charged with the attempted murder of Aluel, 6, who survived when the family’s Toyota Kluger plunged into Lake Gladman on April 8.
The hearing, before bail justice Ken Coughlan, was told of the charges against Guode after she was interviewed by Homicide Squad detectives.
Ms Guode was remanded in custody.
Asked if she had any concerns with being placed in custody, Ms Guode said through an interpreter: “I have no concerns ... Since I moved to Australia, I have not get into trouble with anyone.”
She also clutched her chest and said she was having “a little bit of chest pain” but that she did not require any medication currently.
She was remanded to appear before Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
