    Actually, to be more precise, you need to have an Australian Legal Entity to register a .com.au, usually an ABN number or such.

    Hmm, no expert here, but I think you would need a local office trading under your business name to get an ABN, which means company tax and all sorts of other unnecessaries. Keep hammering at the officials. Good Luck.

    I've got a page of info here:
    http://searchenginez.com.au/domain_names.html

    Consider the .au.com alternative if you just want the domain to *look* like it is Aussie.

    u can register ABN on gov website, that's easy and u could get a number after 1 hour. then u can register .com.au
    I've done like this. But I m still wondering what will happen for my ABN next year,bcz I don't do any business,that's just for a domain name.

    apply for ABN here: http://www.abr.gov.au, just go next by next. at final, u can get your ABN number, but u still need one or more hour to wait it is really activated. And that's free!? unbelievable?
    Additional, after one week or longer, u will receive letter, CD from ATO. That's cool, free of charge.
    However, I m not finance related, I don't know what will happen in the future. anyway,ABN can be cancelled anytime.
