- Marriage equality
On 7 December 2017, the Australian Parliament passed the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Act 2017 to change the definition of marriage and provide for marriage equality in Australia. The right to marry in Australia will no longer be determined by sex or gender.
The Australian Government is progressing arrangements for marriage equality to commence quickly. Further updates will be advised on this website as they occur.
