How do I register for an australia.gov.au account?
Registration takes a few minutes. Select the Register Now! button located on the homepage.
You will be taken to a page explaining how, by registering, you can use your australia.gov.au account access to link to online services with participating agencies.
Alternately, you can also select the LOGIN button, located on the top right of most pages within the australia.gov.au website.
On the Login/Register page, click the large 'Register' button on the right.
You will need to provide the following information:
- A password - must be between 7 and 20 characters in length and contain both letters and numbers
- Five secret questions and answers
Once registration is complete, you will be assigned an australia.gov.au user ID.
You must write down or print this user ID as it cannot be retrieved by answering your secret questions. If you forget your user ID, you will not be able to login to your australia.gov.au account but will need to re-register and re-link any agency accounts to the new user ID.
