How can I get an Australian birth, death, or marriage certificate?

You may obtain copies of Australian birth, death, and marriage certificates from the appropriate State Registrar. A guide to indexes to birth, death, and marriage registrations held by the Library can be found on our website.

The contents of certificates vary from state to state and differ over time within each state. See What you can expect to see on an historical AUS BDM certificate for a description.
