    Do you have an Australian passport?

    Are you an Australian national? IF so, you do not need 6 months, or even a current passport. They will not refuse you entry if you are citizen.. Or am i missing something with your situation?

    ausgirl - as long as your Australian passport has 24 hours validity left then it is a legal document and you can enter Australia with it............I know I've done it!!
