Yes, I have a great site for you. Visit this government web site and search for your ancestor putting his name in the "Keywords" field. If he became a naturalized Australian citizen, you should be able to find the record here.

Depending on the record, you may be able to view it for free or there may be a small charge (Ihaven't figured out what determines this status). The last time I directed someone to this site, they found over 20 documents including birth and marriage certificates, the naturalization application, and so on.

One thing: at some point, you will be asked to login. Just click the "Guest" button. Let me know how you make out, please.
